NOTES ABOUT THE CONCERT

This performance includes the Kyrie and Gloria from the Mozart Grand Mass in C Minor. Great Mass in C minor (German: Große Messe in c-Moll), K. 427/417a, is the common name of the last musical setting of the mass by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He composed it in Vienna in 1782 and 1783, when he was no longer a church musician of the Salzburg Cathedral. The large-scale work, a Missa Solemnis, is scored for two soprano soloists, a tenor and a bass, double chorus and orchestra.

Vesperae solennes de confessore
, K. 339, is a sacred work composed in 1780 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is scored for SATB soloists, SATB choir, and orchestra. It was composed for liturgical use in the Salzburg Cathedral. This was Mozart’s final choral work composed for the cathedral. Enjoy these musical samples…
