SSU Chorus 1On Sunday, January 5 at 3 pm join KRCB and host Steve Mencher for a broadcast of the Santa Rosa Symphony performing Mozart's Requiem in D minor, K.626. This is Mozart's final work; it was unfinished at his death. 
 
In the past, orchestras have used a version of the piece completed by Mozart's pupil Franz Xavier Süssmayr. But Francesco Lecce-Chong, music director of the Santa Rosa Symphony prefers to conduct an edition curated by pianist and Mozart scholar Robert Levin.
 
Also on the program, Franz Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 39 in G minor, nicknamed Storm at Sea; and a contemporary piece by composer Jessie Montgomery called Records from a Vanishing City.
 
Learn the backstory about all these works, and hear Francesco talk about what they mean to him on our broadcast.
 
Note: We're starting Sunday at 3 pm.
