Mozart worked on his Requiem literally on his deathbed, in November and December 1791. He died just after midnight, December 5, 1971 at the age of 35. The Requiem was unfinished.
Konstanze Mozart needed the fee promised for the complete work. She convinced her husband’s pupil, Franz Xavier Sussmayr, to paste together a finale from Mozart’s sketches.
