Some of the most amazing experiences have also been the most serendipitous. Macrina and I spent most of the day strolling and shopping around Kartnerstrasse and the Stephansplatz, and even as we came upon the beautiful light sculpture show at the Stephansdom, we also discovered that it was the anniversary of Mozart’s death, and there is a fairly recent tradition of performing Mozart’s Requiem at 11:00 p.m. – Mozart’s “Todesstunde” (hour of death). There is a special chorus and orchestra dedicated to this purpose. So we fortified ourselves with caffeine at the local Starbucks and then returned for the concert. Some of the soloists were wonderful, and the chorus and orchestra were very good, although the acoustic of the huge cathedral made for a bit of mush. Overall, though, a memorable and serendipitous experience!
