In the Netherlands, the St. Matthew Passion is a favorite composition of the Passion period and is anchored in its culture.Tickets
Requiem & Coronation Mass – WA Mozart
Mozart’s Requiem became known to the general public through the film ‘Amadeus’ and is perhaps the most impressive work by this young composer. Mozart wrote it just before his own death, commissioned by an anonymous client. The Requiem evokes feelings of mourning, fear and sadness. But at the same time also hope, light and beauty.
The festive Krönungsmesse shows a completely different Mozart. At the coronation of the king of Bohemia, the archbishop stipulated that the mass should not last longer than 25 minutes. Despite, or perhaps precisely because of this limitation, the mass radiates vitality and energy.
Olga Zinovieva opens the concert with Mozart’s motet for soprano solo and orchestra: Exsultate Jubilate! The Bach Choir & Orchestra of the Netherlands brings this ancient music back to life.
