Mozart’s creative work amazes by its manysidedness. Despite his short life (Mozart didn’t reach 36) he created lots of compositions in all genres and forms of his epoch. But as distinct from Haydn who wrote instrumentally symphonic and chamber music, Mozart left in all genres compositions of lasting values. His symphonies, quartets, trios, sonatas, concertos, operas, works for choir and orchestra (especially his famous Requiem) are equally significant and still influence on the audience.
Requiem by Mozart is one of the greatest creations of human spirit. Despite canonical text Requiem by Mozart is far from liturgical worship. With the figures of musical expression Mozart represents the deepest world of human feelings – commotion of the spirits, pacific peace, elevating sorrow. The whole composition is penetrated with high humanism, passionate love to a human being, warm sympathy for his sufferings.
