Mozart’s Requiem: Truth and Legend.

Facsimile of the autograph score held in the Austrian National Library with a foreword/introduction by Christoph Wolf.

Mozart’s “Requiem” is fraught with questions and emotions: the expressive depth of its music, sorrow at the great composer’s early death, truth and legend, fragments and attempts to complete the work.

The surviving manuscript reflects its dramatic history: Mozart’s handwriting often appears on the same page as inscriptions by Süssmayr and others. One corner of a page with Mozart’s final musical thoughts was later stolen, but an old photograph bears witness to it.

This high-quality new facsimile presents each page individually trimmed to convey a vivid impression of the original.

Besides a detailed description of the manuscript by Günter Brosche, the volume contains a Foreword by Christoph Wolff depicting the work’s genesis.
