The Requiem in F minor op. 146 is the most well-known and most important work by Franz Lachner. The composer, living for a long time in Vienna, developed as a “classicist romantic” composer, who merged classical form, baroque fugue and romantic emotional impact in a very personal style. Lachner’s Requiem shows a clear expression of his admiration for Mozart, although his music differs essentially from Mozart’s. In its content it displays both conservative, backward-looking features and extremely progressive characteristics. While an introverted mood prevails throughout most of the work, the large orchestral ensemble reveals its full effect in a few dramatic passages. Because of the work’s size and the scoring it was impossible to use the Requiem in the liturgy. But precisely its performance in a secular “forum” made it one of Lachner’s best known compositions.
