PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Philadelphia Orchestra presents Debussy’s Nocturnes and Mozart’s Requiem January 6th through 9th at the Kimmel Center.

Jeremy Rothman, the orchestra’s vice president for artistic planning, says the Requiem hasn’t been performed by the orchestra in 20 years:

“It’s the requiem mass; the Catholic mass. It was commissioned by a count for his deceased wife, but a lot of people now relate this requiem mass actually for Mozart himself although he may not have necessarily been aware of his imminent death at the age of 35 in the middle of writing this.”
