Shortly before his death in 1849, Chopin requested that Mozart’s Requiem be performed at his funeral. That wish was fulfilled. This transcription of the popular Lacrimosa movement was published in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Chopin’s death.


“[Sato’s Lacrimosa transcription] is the product of fine craftsmanship coupled with a profound understanding of the original source. This evocative movement is treated to an expert setting which preserves the pathos of the text and orchestration yet remains happily pianistic.”

—Steven Spooner, pianist

Also reviewed in Clavier, November 1999
