1791 was a busy year for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Already working on Die Zauberflöte, and under deadline to deliver La Clemenza di Tito, he received a commission for a Requiem. The colorful story of what happened next is well known. Mozart's untimely death left the Requiem unfinished. After several composers were approached, it was finally completed by Franz Xaver Süssmayr, a copyist and composer who was working with Mozart on his opera commissions. Over time Süssmayr's version was accepted as the closest to Mozart's intentions, but it lacked in many ways.

In 2016, a young French composer, Pierre-Henri Dutron, persuaded René Jacobs to perform his own revision of Süssmayr's Requiem completion. This new version was performed for audiences in a series of five concerts around Europe and was met with widespread acclaim. Harmonia Mundi presents the world premier studio recording of Dutron's revised completion of Mozart's Requiem, featuring conductor René Jacobs and the Freiburger Barockorchester along with Sophie Karthauser (soprano), Marie-Claude Chappuis (mezzo), Maximilian Schmitt (tenor), Johannes Weisser (baritone) and RIAS Kammerchor.

This special 180g vinyl edition of the recording was recorded in hi-def analog.
