Vivaldi Gloria in D and Mozart Mass in C minor

with Southern Sinfonia, professional chamber orchestra

Nigel Perrin conductor                             

Sponsored by the Bryan Foster Charitable Trust

Our summer concert features two of the great masterworks in the choral repertoire.
Vivaldi’s Gloria in D (RV589), in its combination of exuberant brilliance with moments of sadness and contemplation, is a firm favourite. Highly theatrical, it buzzes with bold contrasts and
amazing sounds.

Mozart’s Mass in C Minor (K427) stands alongside his perhaps more famous Requiem as one of the best-loved and greatest works of sacred choral music. The music has been described as having ‘a breathtaking sense of personal utterance’ and some have suggested that it was never completed, as Mozart did not know how to finish a score ‘already beyond perfection.’
