Mozart's Mass in C minor K.427, the "Grosse Messe," is a torso-a circumstance which, in view of the monumentality of the work, is truly unfortunate. The American musicologist and internationally acclaimed concert pianist, Robert D. Levin has reconstructed and completed the Mass, which occupies an outstanding position among Mozart's church music. In honor of Mozart's 250th birthday Carus-Verlag Stuttgart is publishing this important reconstruction and thus this central work of church music will now be available in a form which is liturgically complete. Its length now fills out a complete concert.
