I have listened to many recordings of Mozart's Requiem, but this performance of a small group of musicians (12 strings; 8 winds/brass; 1 timpani; 13 singers + 4 soloist singers + conductor) revealed to me new aspects of how well the different voices of the orchestra and choir/soloists are integrated and support each other. Less is really more. Here, location is everything, and Karlskirche and its acoustics was a key part of the performance. The acoustics at many times made me look up toward the dome, especially at the end of movements. Mozart's orchestration as to when he used the timpani or not, seeing up-close how the singers and instrumentalists support each other or counterbalance each other was inspiring. Period instruments were appreciated - especially cellists playing without endpin, period trombone, horn, etc. This performance made me fall in love again with the Requiem but in a completely different way. It felt like going back in time and getting a glimpse as to how this piece was performed in the day. Thank you for such an amazing experience!

A great experience marred by many people in the standing area continually recording the performance with their brightly light mobile phones and disturbing the serene surrounding ambiance.

Beautiful , exuberant baroque building. A Church ? Silver balls hanging from the ceiling as an art and fascinating object. Respectful Concert in rich surroundings. A crowded house with silent visitors.

There are many Mozart, Vivaldi, Haydn and other composers' concerts on offer in Vienna. Some are outright tourist traps, others excellent quality. Mozart's Requiem in D in the Karslkirche is an outstanding performance. The emotion of hearing the Requiem in the same city where it was first performed on 10 December 1791 (shortly after Mozart's death) is great, even though that was not in the Karlskirche but in the St Michael's chapel. Seats in the B category are recommended for their good quality-price ratio.
