    Shortly before the coronation of Emperor Leopold, a mysterious figure brings Mozart an unsigned letter with the following request: "Would Mozart like to undertake the composition of a Requiem, for what price and how soon could he deliver it? Struck by this request and on the advice of his wife Constance, he decided to accept. Although all sorts of hypotheses have been put forward about this mysterious commissioner and his messenger, the "grey knight", we now know that this Mass of the Dead was commissioned by Count Walsegg, an eccentric character who had the habit of signing works that he had not written. Mozart worked on his Requiem until the last days of his life, so much so that on the title page it says "1792" because he intended to finish it the following year. After his death in December 1791, Constance asked Franz Xaver Süssmayer to complete the work in accordance with Mozart's wishes. Although some musicologists dispute the fact that Mozart wanted Süssmayer to complete the work, this is the version most often performed and the one chosen by Carl Czerny for his transcription.

    Why Carl Czerny's version?
    Not much is known about this version, apart from the fact that it was written at the request of Abbot Maximilian Stadler, a composer and pianist who was very prominent in the 19th century, was in charge of the Imperial Musical Archives and was also one of those who settled Mozart's estate. This version was published by Diabelli in 1827. It is a transmission version. Naturally, the subject matter is more intimate, closer to the aesthetics of chamber music; it is almost a salon work.
