Mozart left portions of his Mass in C minor incomplete; this performance will feature the version of the work completed by Harvard scholar Robert Levin. This edition uses Mozart’s own sketches and related music, preserving the composer’s spirit. Levin, whose completion of the Mozart Requiem has become the preferred performing version today, completed the Mass in C minor for Mozart’s 250th birthday in 2006. MORE
