Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor K 427 is a very different affair from most of the well-known Salzburg masses of the missa brevis type. Dating from around 1782–3, by which time Mozart had moved to Vienna, the Great Mass is conceived on a large scale as an extended missa solemnis, involving a large orchestra, virtuoso solo vocal writing and chorus, sometimes in eight parts. Mozart’s new wife Constanze sang the celebrated ‘Et incarnatus est’ in the first performance of part of the work in 1783. Like the Requiem, the work is incomplete. Why did Mozart write it, why did he leave it unfinished, how does it relate to his other work of around this time? Dr. John Kitchen (University of Edinburgh) will be joined by SCO players to explore these and other questions surrounding this great work.

Delivered in partnership with the University of Edinburgh Open Studies.
