Arion Baroque Orchestra & Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal - Requiem and Coronation

Guest presenters

This concert proposes to (re)discover two contrasting masses heard in France during the reigns of Louis XVI and of Napoleon. Composed by Mozart in 1791 on his deathbed at the behest of a mysterious character, his Requiem was performed in Paris for the first time in 1804 in a slightly modified version conducted by Luigi Cherubini, to triumphant acclaim. A few decades earlier, in 1774, François Giroust, the last representative of the French grand motet, was commissioned to compose the music of the coronation mass for Louis XVI at Reims Cathedral.
