Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Mozart's Mass in C minor

Scottish Chamber Orchestra - Mozart's Mass in C minor

Friday, April 4, 2014 - 19:30

A tale of two wives lies behind this grand programme. Mozart’s future wife, Constanze Weber was the intended soloist for the ravishing soprano writing in the Et Incarnatus Est of his mass – an utterly sublime and arresting moment of pure love in music. Silvestrov’s The Messenger harks back to Mozart in a touching memorial for his own wife who died suddenly in her 40s.

The symphony between them needs no introduction: one of Mozart’s most famous and dramatic statements.
