I go on working because composing is less tiring than resting. Moreover I have nothing more to fear. I can tell from my condition that the hour is striking; I am about to breathe my last; I have come to the end of my life before having the full enjoyment of my talent. And yet life has been so beautiful, my career began under such happy auspice. Mozart
1791, Mozart was ill and in debt, and yet, 1791 was the year in which he composed La Clemenza di Tito and the Clarinet Concerto, finished The Magic Flute and almost completed his Requiem. Whatever the circumstances of its commission and completion, Mozart’s Requiem speaks for itself.
