The Music of MOZART’S LAST ARIA: The Requiem


In my novel about the death of the great composer, I knew I’d have to give a central position to Mozart’s Requiem, his most powerful piece of music and the one that’s most laden with death — perhaps, indeed, his own. So, in MOZART’S LAST ARIA, there’s a key scene set in the crypt below St. Michael’s Church in Vienna (where the Requiem was premiered, in a performance at a memorial service for poor Wolfgang himself). Listen to more of the music from the novel. Watch more videos about the book.
