Majestic Masses - November 17-18, 2023

Our season opens with two stellar works created in Vienna during the classical era for chorus, orchestra and soloists.

The concert begins with Franz Schubert's youthful Mass No. 2 in G. Composed in less than a week in March 1815, it has become the best known of his three short Mass settings.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Mass in C minor, K. 427 is considered one of his greatest works. The incomplete version was composed while Wolfgang was in Vienna courting his then fiancée, Constanze, who was the soprano soloist at the work's 1783 premiere in Salzburg. We present the reconstruction and completion by Helmut Eder.
