Commissioned by a mysterious stranger to compose a Requiem Mass, Mozart died before he was able to complete what many consider to be his magnum opus. These shadowy and tragic circumstances have only added to the mystique of this compelling and deeply personal work. American composer Charles Ives wrote The Unanswered Question in 1906 as part of a suite titled Two Contemplations. This short work is deeply reverential, incorporating hymn-like qualities that encourage us to ponder the eternal question of existence.   Douglas Lilburn Auditorium, Christchurch Town Hall CSO marketing@cso.co.nz Get Tickets
