CL Critic Doug DeLoach Recommends: The world-renowned ASO Chorus returns to Symphony Hall under the direction of incoming Music Director Nathalie Stutzmann for their first concerts since the coronavirus pandemic shut down live performances. The Chorus’ program features Mozart's awesome Requiem mass and Richard Strauss’ symphonic poem Death and Transfiguration. — DD
From the venue:We welcome back to our stage the wonderful ASO Chorus! This weekend they deliver one of the most powerful and awe-inspiring works ever written, Mozart's Requiem mass. Left unfinished at the time of his death in 1791, the Requiem was completed by Franz Xaver Süssmayr from notes Mozart had left throughout the piece, maintaining an air of mystery ever since.
