Boise Phil Goes Major with Requiem in D Minor 

It's a magnificent piece of plagiarism

Mozart's Requiem is required listening.

Mozart's Requiem is required listening.

Commissioned by a nobleman who intended to claim it as his own and finished by one of Mozart's students after the master's death, the Requiem in D Minor is simultaneously one of the greatest pieces of music and (in a sense) one of the most magnificent pieces of plagiarism ever scored. Experience it with the Boise Phil and Master Chorale on Friday, March 11 at the Northwest Nazarene University Brandt Center. The Requiem will be reprised Saturday, March 12 at the Morrison Center, along with performances of the overture to Don Giovanni and Tchaikovsky's homage to Amadeus, Suite No. 4, Mozartania.
