About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

As different as their music is, both are regarded as saints of sorts: Mozart and the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt have created works that are deeply moving and can lead their listeners into spiritual spheres. At least Mozart's Requiem does for many, and Pärt's choral works also remind us that there is a spiritual world beyond the visible that connects us all. The Dresdner Kreuzchor and the Dresdner Philharmonie continue their tradition of joint concerts with works by both and at the same time commemorate the end of the Second World War 80 years ago.
