Any time a composer is taken from this world prematurely, there is an automatic tendency to attach great significance to his last notes. Mozart's case is particularly touching, since he died so young (only 35). The question, then, is not only how would he have completed the "Requiem" he was working on, but also how much more incomparable music died with him. Here are a few other notable examples of musica interruptus. Anton Bruckner knew he was dying when he feverishly tried to complete his Symphony No. 9, which the BSO will turn to later this season.
