Weber, \"Symphony, Op. 21.\" Beethoven, \"Symphony No. 8 in F Major.\" Mozart \"Requiem in D Minor.\" Take a journey through Vienna, the home of many great composers and the prominent location that cultivated classical development through the ages. We start our trip with \"Symphony,\" written by one of Schoenberg's finest students in Vienna, Anton Webern, who dedicated the piece to his daughter. Next we visit Beethoven's humorous symphony, and his shortest, \"Symphony No. 8 in F Major.\" Referred to as "The Little Symphony in F Major," Beethoven did not return to the features four exceptional soloists as well as the talented voices of the University Choral, State Singers and MSU Choral Union. Composed in Vienna, Mozart's \"Requiem\" was his final composition, but not completed before his death. There is much speculation and many myths that surround this masterpiece.
