What's on Music Mozart Masterpieces Date: Saturday 30 November 2019 Time: 7.30pm Mosaic Chamber Choir Amadeus Chamber Orchestra Camilla Harris soprano Emily Blanch mezzo-soprano Peter Martin tenor Lawrence White bass Simon Over conductor The Mosaic Chamber Choir and Amadeus Chamber Orchestra once again join forces to present an evening of Mozart masterpieces. The “Great” Mass in C Minor was composed in 1782 and was the last of numerous masses composed by Mozart starting when he was ten years of age. The work appeared in accordance with a promise given by the composer when his fiancée Constanze was ill. The first performance of three of the movements of the mass – Kyrie, Gloria and Sanctus – took place on 26 August 1783 at St Peter’s in Salzburg where Constanze sang the soprano part. The movements Credo and Agnus Dei were incomplete and, like his Requiem, the work remained unfinished at his death. The Solemn Vespers were written in 1780 for liturgical use in Salzburg Cathedral. Although the piece was perfectly suited for use in a liturgical setting, Mozart managed to include subtle nods to opera and counterpoint as well. The Solemn Vespers represent Mozart’s triumphant marriage of his own artistic needs with the demands of his patron Archbishop Colloredo, Bishop of Salzburg.
