Missa Brevis in D Minor- W.A. Mozart
The Missa Brevis in D Minor for four mixed voices was written by a 13 year-old in Salzburg in 1769. This piece for string orchestra and four soloists was the only one of Mozart’s masses written in minor key. Its tormented character foreshadows the Requiem and speaks volumes about the genius of its young composer.
