London Philharmonic Orchestra: Death and Transfiguration

Part of Orchestral Theatre

Mozart's Requiem is paired with a dazzlingly different vision of the afterlife by one of Mozart's biggest fans, the young Richard Strauss.

The masked stranger, the secret commission, the deathbed struggle: if you've seen Amadeus, you'll already know the legend of Mozart's Requiem. But the music itself is more compelling than any movie: dark, majestic and heartrendingly beautiful, you simply have to hear it performed live.

As a singer herself, Nathalie Stutzmann understands the Requiem from the inside. She has assembled a world-class team of soloists plus the London Philharmonic Choir to bring new life to Mozart's last testament, along with Richard Strauss' Death and Transfiguration (Tod und Verklärung)
