Mozart died before finishing his Requiem, one of those ironies that meet at the intersection of the personal and the historical and are ripe for good storytelling. This story well get a more documentary telling this Saturday, as the Pasadena Master Chorale performs portions of the Requiem (only those Mozart himself wrote) interwoven with readings of the composer’s letters. Dan Selon will be standing in for Mozart. We are assuming the letters will be read in translation. Also in the program are works written in the last year of Mozart’s life, K. 621 and K. 618. An interesting take on a classic story.
