Choir, Sacred music
Franz Xaver Mozart, Fest-Сhor for the Unveiling of the Mozart Monument in Salzburg
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Requiem, K.626
In 1826, 35 years after the death of his Great Father, Franz Xaver Mozart conducted W.A.Mozart’s famous Requiem at the St George’s Cathedral in Lviv. Mozart, the Son, sought to make such memorable concert, held together with the St Cecilia Choir founded by him at the St George’s Cathedral, annual. Thus the LvivMozArt Festival has revived the musical tradition established by F.X.Mozart.
‘Festchor’ written by F.X.Mozart is also included into the concert programme to mark the occasion of W.A.Mozart’s monument unveiling in Salzburg in 1842, when Franz Xaver personally conducted the Choir and his senior brother Karl Tomas Mozart was present.
