Beethoven Symphony No.1
Mozart Great C Minor Mass
Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful of Mozart’s Masses, hence its title of the Great Mass, this work is a particular joy for the soprano voice.
Unusually this was not a commission for Mozart, who was a ‘jobbing’ composer; it was written for his own musical pleasure, and begun, in part, as a celebration of his marriage to Constanze who was one of the soloists in an early performance.
The wit and brilliance of Beethoven’s First Symphony, peppered with classic Beethovian gestures, complements an evening that will be indeed, great.
