Orchestre des Champs-Elysées

Orchestre des Champs-Elysées
Great mass full of puzzles

21 November 2021, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

After the thrilling Mozart's Requiem in 2018, the time has finally come again: Philippe Herreweghe accepts the invitation and brings with him, alongside the excellent musicians of the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées and the Collegium Vocale Gent, a work that has rarity value: It has only been performed three times since 1956. We are talking about Mozart's "Great Mass" in C minor. A mass that still poses many riddles today, since it is only available unfinished. For what occasion was it composed? Why was it not completed? Questions that may never be answered. But there is no doubt that even the fragments are musically and compositionally outstanding. Not only the famous soprano aria "Et incarnatus est", which Mozart composed for his wife Constanze, but also all the other numbers have great goosebump potential, which is fully exploited by Philippe Herreweghe and his fellow musicians.
