Heinz Moehn was a noted editor for the German publisher Barenreiter. He was best known for his editions of Mozart’s works including the great Requiem. And, while every major orchestra in the world has played his edition of the Requiem, none knew he was also a remarkable composer—until now.
Here in Saskatoon, Heinz Moehn’s grandson unearthed his grandfather’s compositions in a box of family heirlooms. The SSO collaborated with Saskatoon-based composer Paul Suchan to take Moehn’s hand-written score for his Violin Concerto and create parts for the SSO to perform—marking the first performance of the concerto in 80 years. We’ve called up rising-star Timothy Chooi to lend his artistry to this unveiling of a new, old concerto.

Join the SSO as we celebrate mothers on their special day! We’re putting together a concert of charming chamber music, including a string quartet rumoured to have been written by Mozart while his wife, Constanza, was giving birth!
Enjoy a wonderful spring day on the beautiful University of Saskatchewan campus.
