Mozartâ€™s transcendent Mass in C Minor, considered to be one of his greatest choral works, closes our 2016/17 season. A celebration of the composerâ€™s marriage that was left unfinished for reasons we may never know, this piece contains an extraordinary range of style and depth of expression. Acclaimed British sopranos Julia Doyle and Joanne Lunn are featured alongside the orchestra and Tafelmusik Chamber Choir in this fitting third and final concert celebrating the choirâ€™s 35th anniversary.
The program opens with Tafelmusikâ€™s debut performance of Haydnâ€™s spirited Symphony no. 98, composed in London and thought by many to be a tribute to his compatriot and friend, Mozart. The â€śbrilliant and refinedâ€ť (Critica Classica) violinist and Music Director Designate Elisa Citterio returns for the second time this season to lead this piece.
