Mozart’s wealth of choral music is prolifc, and inarguably one of the crown jewels in his legacy is his ‘Coronation’ Mass. Given the name for the sheer frequency of its use in royal ceremonies, little needs to be said about the grandeur that this momentous piece exudes. Mozart’s Overture to The Magic Flute opens the concert with a sense of wonder and invention.
Featuring also in the programme are choral and orchestral pieces by Mendelssohn, including his electrifying Violin Concerto with the ‘passionate, eloquent’ (The Independent) Chloë Hanslip. The City of London Choir also performs the German composer’s unaccompanied settings of Psalm 43 and Verleih uns frieden gnädiglich.
This concert is promoted in association with the City of London Choir.
