Réquiem K. 626 of W. A. Mozart (and of others)

 

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composes an excellent Requiem Mass, not to make people cry, but to give a loving farewell to someone who has left this world. The attitude of a genius to the amica omnium, the friend (enemy?) of all mortals is striking, for he has developed the psychic faculties in a quasi-infinite way, since he holds a sixth sense and even more. Thus his idea of death is positively regarded as a consolation.

Orfeón de Granada. The origins of the Orfeón de Granada go back to 1903, year in which Francisco Alonso founded a choir under the auspices of the Sociedad Filarmónica de Granada. Among the most relevant periods of his past are those lived until 1911 and, later, from 1938 onwards, the Orfeón de Granada was directed by Valentín Ruiz Aznar. In more recent times, the Orfeón de Granada recovers its activity in 2003 and, after that, its directors have been Ángel López Carreño, Francisco Ruiz Montes, Héctor Eliel Márquez and José Carlos Palomares, who have integrated the tradition of the chorale repertoires through the performance of works from a cappella pieces to the symphonic-choral repertoire of diverse styles and composers. From January 2016 the Orfeón de Granada is directed by Pablo Guerrero Elorza.
