It is a vexing truth that both of Mozart’s two towering choral works were both left unfinished. While we know that the Requiem was not completed due to the master’s untimely death. Less is known as to why the Mass in c minor was not completed. Join the Western Reserve Chorale in its performance of Mozart’s ‘Great’ Mass. With its magnificent and mighty choruses, sensuous and ornate solos, large orchestral and solo instrumental segments, the Mass in C minor was unlike any church music of its time and stood apart from the restrictions of the era’s “enlightened” commissioners of church music. It represents an example of Mozart creating, in his own voice, a work of substantial grandeur in the nature of Bach’s Mass in B minor or the larger works of Handel.
The Western Reserve Chorale will be joined by sopranos Marian Vogel and Lara Troyer, tenor Brian Skoog and baritone Dylan Glenn in presenting this glorious work for chorus and orchestra.
The free concert is 3pm, Sunday, March 22, 2020 at Church of the Gesu in University Heights. Reception to follow performance.
