Paul Mauffray : Mozart Requiem Dies Irae

This performance of the Mozart Requiem was part of a benefit concert for the Gulf Coast Orchestra Relief which helped musicians who were effected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Performed by the Czech Philharmonic Chorus and the Brno Philharmonic, conductor Paul Mauffray.

Instead of the usual version completed by Süssmayr, for this performance, I reconstructed the first version completed by Mozart's pupil Josef Eybler. Please post a comment if you can correctly point out some of the differences you hear in the orchestration! But don't cheat by using a critcal edition which shows the Eybler version ;-)
