Conductor-composer, Masato Suzuki has been busy with a number of other projects as well, including the completion of a new edition of Mozart's Requiem. The Seattle Symphony, under the baton of Masaaki Suzuki will give the US Premiere of Masato Suzuki's new edition of the Mozart Requiem on October 17, 19, and 20. In this new edition, based on Süßmayr’s complete and revised edition, an "Amen", based on the sketch of the Amen fugue discovered in 1960, is added after the "Lacrymosa". Additionally, the two main differences in this edition as compared to others are the incorporation of the orchestration made by Eybler, a student of Mozart, prior to that of Süßmayr, and the return to and the reexamining of the first edition published by Breitkopf & Härtel in Leipzig in 1800.
