Mozart Coronation Mass

This event has passed.
January 15, 2014
January 16, 2014

The jubilant spirit of this Mozart Mass has made it the favourite of his many settings of this text. An all-Canadian cast of vocal soloists, chorus, and orchestra join forces for an uplifting hymn of praise. The Violin Concerto No. 5 drew its nickname from a spicy, percussive episode in the finale.

Come for: The Grammy-winning violinist Hilary Hahn is internationally celebrated for her tremendous artistry.

And more: One of Mozart’s most popular masses—it was the preferred music for royal coronations in 19th-century Vienna.

Program: Mozart: Violin Concerto No. 5, K. 219 “Turkish”; Mozart: “Laudate Dominum” from Vesperae solennes de confessore, K. 339; and Mozart: Missa in C major, K. 317 “Coronation.”
