Description

The offertory “Misericordias Domini” K.222 (205a) has a special place among Mozart’s minor ecclesiastical works. A letter from Wolfgang to Padre Martini, dated 4 September 1776, informs us that the piece waswritten in January or February 1775 in Munich at the request of the Prince Elector of Bavaria, and was performed there on 5 March. Drawing closely on the carefully wrought works of Mozart’s Salzburg predecessors andincorporating a motif from Johann Ernst Eberlein’s “Benedixisti Domine”, this contrapuntal masterpiece unites polyphony with expressive, tension-laden harmonies. Unfortunately, as the copy sent to PadreMartinicannot be located in Bologna, the authenticity of the viola part is still open to question.
