Mozart died on Dec 5 in 1791 and left behind an unfinished masterpiece. And now

"Musicologist and pianist Robert Levin, who earlier prepared a compelling new realization of the "Requiem," has now done the same for the "Mass." German Helmuth Rilling, a noted early music and choral specialist, conducted the well-received premiere at Carnegie Hall in Jan. 2005 and this weekend is leading the Detroit Symphony Orchestra through Levin's version of the "Mass." Kudos to the DSO for closing its two-week Mozart Festival with a jolt of fresh thinking." Link
