Claudio Marino Moretti conducts Schnittke
at La Fenice theater in Venice
Claudio Marino Moretti

Claudio Marino Moretti leads the choir and instrumentalists of the La Fenice Theater in the performance of Alfred Schnittke’s “Requiem”. The concert takes place as part of the “A life in music 2020” Prize which will be awarded on 11 December 2020 to the Venetian music critic and artistic director Mario Messinis, who died last September at the age of 88.

Russian composer Alfred Schnittke wrote his “Requiem” in the mid-1970s as incidental music for a play (Schiller’s Don Carlos). The influence of Shostakovich is evidenced in the “polystylistic” nature of Schnittke’s compositions, which challenged authority by showing that art could not be controlled nor disciplined. One of the most striking aspects of this “Requiem” is its eccentric instrumentation: an acoustic ensemble of trumpet, trombone, celesta, piano and organ that is joined by electric bass guitar, electric guitar and a percussion arsenal that includes a drum set.

Location: La Fenice theater, Venice

Schedule: December 11, 2020 – CANCELLED
