The Requiem is known to the general public in the version undertaken immediately after Mozart's death by his pupil Franz Yaver Sussmayr. The attacks against Sussmayr's completion began in 1825, when the so-called "Requiem Controversy" erupted. Over the last decade a number of musicians have attempted to cleanse the Requiem of the deficiencies introduced by Sussmayr. The completion published here takes into account the tendencies of the newer versions (such as revised instrumentation, or recomposition of some parts). At this the character, texture, voice leading, continuity and structure of Mozart's music was observed. Score available separately - see item CA.5162600.

  • May 07, 2011 Mozart Requiem's Levin Version

    The score is excellent. I ordered this score, because I have its CD which was played by Gachinger Kantrei and conducted by Helmuth Rilling in Stuttgart. It sounds beautiful. I wanted to read the score and find the exact differences from the Sussmayer version. Yes I found quite a difference...

    in Lacrimosa, Osanna after Sanctus, Osanna after Benedictus. Interesting is that the notes asscociated by the text in Lux aeteruna .is different. This score gives us a new Requiem but well in the envelope of Mozart music. I am now rehearcing the Sussmayer version. I wish I could sing this Levein version in the future. But it is difficult to know Dr. Levin's intension for modification from the score. I am just a tenor and not an academinian.
