Finding Heinz Moehn - Mozart Requiem

Saskatoon Symphony Chorus, Duff Warkentin

Heinz Moehn was a noted editor for the German publisher Barenreiter. He was best known for his editions of Mozart’s works including the great Requiem.

And, while every major orchestra in the world has played his edition of the Requiem, none knew he was also a remarkable composer—until now.

Here in Saskatoon, Heinz Moehn’s grandson unearthed his grandfather’s compositions in a box of family heirlooms. The SSO collaborated with Saskatoon-based composer Paul Suchan to take Moehn’s hand-written score for his Violin Concerto and create parts for the SSO to perform—marking the first performance of the concerto in 80 years. We’ve called up rising-star Timothy Chooi to lend his artistry to this unveiling of a new, old concerto.

We’re pairing this debut of Moehn’s concerto with his edition of the beloved Mozart Requiem, featuring a thrilling cast of singers including Prince Albert-born soprano Andrea Lett and tenor Michael Harris.

Single tickets on sale August 1st.
