Info for Mozart: Requiem in D Minor, K. 626 (Arr. P. Lichtenthal for String Quartet)



The peculiarity of this release by the Austrian ensemble Pandolfis Consort playing on period instruments is that Mozart’s “Requiem” is presented here in the version for string quartet made by his contemporary Peter Lichtenthal, therefore going not only without choir and orchestra, but also without vocal soloists. Everything is focused on the four voices of the strings, which creates a special intimacy and intensity. As the founder of the Pandolfis Consort, the violist Elzbieta Sajka-Bachler, suggests, this ingenious version, made by the composer at the time to popularize Mozart's music in Italy, has the character of chamber music and music making because “the small space brings the listeners closer together than a concert hall”. Tears, sorrow, pain, but also hope can be experienced here especially close.

Pandolfis Consort



The Pandolfis Consort
was founded in 2004 by Elzieta Sajka-Bachler, viola player und graduate of Krakow Music Academy to bring rarely performed works by famous or forgotten composers to a wider public. The name comes from the violin maker Giuseppe Galieri Pandolfis, who was probably of Greek descent and was a student of Nicola Amati.

The ensemble's repertoire contains some 500 works and extends from early Baroque to Classical to modern music and also includes contemporary compositions written for the Consort. The ensemble's period instruments set composers the interesting task of adapting their modern tonal language and in this way finding new sounds. In 2012 the ensemble gave the first performances of commissioned compositions by Johanna Doderer (Austria) and Stanley Grill (USA) and, in Innsbruck in 2014, of two works by Tyrolean composer, Franz Baur.
