The Verbier Festival has developed close links with András Schiff and he appears as both conductor and soloist in this programme of works from the very end of Mozart’s short life. The composer’s final piano concerto, a work full of subtly shifting emotions, opens the concert. It was first performed in 1791, the year that Mozart died, leaving his Requiem incomplete. Almost as famous for its mysterious genesis as for its grave beauty and expressive power, this monumental work is complemented here by the sublime motet ‘Ave verum corpus’.
