We sought to alter as little as possible the reconstruction of Freystadtler, Eybler and Sussmayr, and to present Mozart's largest sacred work as it was 'arranged' by his grieving and devoted pupils (1791-1792). (H. C. Robbins Landon)
The Landon version of the Mozart Requiem, published by Mozart expert H. C. Robbins Landon, was a milestone. In his meticulously edited work, Landon incorporated latest research in an attempt to take into account the contributions of the Mozart pupils Franz Xaver Sussmayr, Joseph Eybler and Franz Jakob Freystadtler for the first time. The edition presents the unfinished masterpiece in a version that comes as close as possible to the state in which it was found in 1791/92 a concept that has proven itself repeatedly in performance. The Landon version is ideal for all who want to perform Mozart's Requiem today in this historical form and wish to use neither the traditional Sussmayr version nor modern-day reconstructions or new compositional attempts.
Jedenfalls schreibt sie am 16.11.1800 an andre: ... Breitkopf & Hartel habe ich indessen uberlassen sie nochmals zu beurtheilen und nach ihren Criterien zu schazen. Ich habe mich ganz von aller Burgschaft dass sie von Mozart sind losgesagt - das ist die Hauptsache um die es mir zu thun ist.
NB: piano reduction and choral score can be used for both versions.
