Mozart’s Requiem was the composer’s last work which he never finished. Upon completion by his student Franz Süssmayr, the piece became widely recognised as one of the greatest requiems ever written. This November, Hong Kong Sinfonietta will be collaborating with the globally-acclaimed Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir for the first time to present this monumental work in the classical choral canon.
Founded in 1981, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir has been under the direction of Kaspars Putniņš since 2014. In this visit to Hong Kong, they will also be bringing their rendition of “Adam’s Lament” by Arvo Pärt, and Veljo Tormis’s “Curse Upon Iron”, as part of their mission to highlight Estonian talent in contemporary music. Hong Kong Sinfonietta will be complementing this with Pärt’s “Fratres”, a mesmerising exploration of stillness and movement for violin, string orchestra and percussion.
