The point is to increase gradually the level of the understanding, cultivation and practice of musical art. This task falls particularly to the new Academy.

Conductor: Philippe Herreweghe

Count Franz Walsegg-Stuppach and his mysterious ‘grey messenger’ are two well-known figures in the Mozart legend and key players in the story of the creation of his Requiem. The work the aristocrat commissioned, which took on a fatal cult-like character on the death of Mozart, is conducted here by Philippe Herreweghe and performed in the company of another seminal Mozart piece, the Jupiter symphony. Herreweghe, a great pioneer of historically informed performances, and Collegium Vocale Gent, his marvellous historical performance ensemble founded some half a century ago, are joined by the Parisian Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, who have themselves functioned under the guidance of the Belgian artist since 2010. Herreweghe is complemented on this occasion by Emőke Baráth, the young Hungarian soprano much sought-after in the world of early music and opera, who ranks highly in the pantheon of vocal soloists for the immortal Requiem.

The Orchestre des Champs-Élysées is funded by the French Ministry of Culture and the government of the Nouvelle Aquitaine region. This tour is funded by Spedidam. SPEDIDAM is a collection and distribution company that manages artists rights in matters of recording, diffusion, and use of recorded material.
