Mozart’s Requiem is a choral masterpiece shrouded in mystery…
How much of the ‘Requiem’ did Mozart actually write? He died before the piece was finished. Mozart did compose part of the ‘Requiem’ in late 1791 but it was unfinished when he died December 5, 1791. Composer Franz Xaver Suessmayr completed the unfinished ‘Requiem’ in 1792 but it cannot be shown what parts Sussmayr actually wrote. This story is fictionalized in the movie ‘Amadeus’. The movie, released in 1984, won 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture of the Year.
