Your Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra is about to perform one of the great choral works of all time: Mozart's Requiem.  RPO Music Director Ward Stare and tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, who is a professor at the Eastman School of Music, joined WXXI-FM Music Director Julia Figueras to chat about its curious history and how to approach the work. Also discussed: Hovhaness's fugues and Stravinsky's War Symphony.
