Christoph Eschenbach bids farewell after four years as principal conductor of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin with two particularly impressive works: Franz Schubert’s much-loved Symphony in B Minor, known as the “Unfinished Symphony” – perhaps a thought-provoking reminder that every human life remains incomplete. And Mozart’s last work, his famous Requiem. The fact that it was a funeral mass, of all things, and that he left it unfinished when he died aged just 35, has caused rumours to run rife for centuries. Was he tormented by premonitions, did he therefore rush to complete it and tragically fail in this endeavour? Who is the mysterious “Grey Messenger”? Did the composer die a natural death or was murderous intrigue afoot within musical circles? These and many other exciting speculations have been examined and clarified by musicology over the course of time. What remains is celestially beautiful music with Christoph Eschenbach, the Konzerthausorchester, the Vocalconsort Berlin and renowned soloists.
