About the event

Daniel Hyde conducts the City of London Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Goethe's poem 'Calm Seas and Properous Voyage' contemplates a voyage by sea: the ever-present danger of death contrasted with the excitement of setting forth. The first half of the concert includes a setting of those words by Beethoven as well as Mendelssohn's much-loved overture inspired by the same text, and the optimistic spirit is picked up by Mozart's joyful 'Exultate Jubilate'. 

The portentous opening bars of Mozart's Requiem return unambiguously to themes of death and Judgement Day. The composer himself famously met his untimely and tragic end before the Requiem was completed, and it stands with dramatic poignancy as his own epitaph.
