MOZART GREAT MASS

FEB 5 + 7

Overview

Mozart’s aptly-named Great Mass, composed for his wife Constanze but tragically left unfinished at his death, highlights this evening of sublimely spiritual music, opening and closing with a cappella choral meditations by Schubert and Bruckner. Raphaël Pichon, the acclaimed 35-year old director of the Paris-based ensemble Pygmalion, leads in his H+H debut.
