Programme

Missy Mazzoli
Dark with Excessive Bright – 
Concert for violin and strings orchestra

Mozart
Requiem in d Minor K. 626
Version: Franz Xaver Süßmayr

The New York Times describes her as one of the most imaginative and astonishing sound creators working in New York; Time Out New York even calls her ‘Brooklyn's post-millenial Mozart’: the American composer Missy Mazzoli. Her concerto for violin and string orchestra, whose solo part was originally conceived for double bass, is based on the seemingly absurd phrase ‘Dark with Excessive Bright’, a figuratively surreal description of God that she took from the epic poem Paradise Lost by English poet John Milton. Composed in 2018, the work enters into a dialogue on the 233rd anniversary of Mozart's death with his myth-enshrouded Requiem, which is known to have remained a fragment and was completed after Mozart's death by his pupil Franz Xaver Süßmayr.
