Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Mass in C minor

22 February 2018 at 7:30pm

Schubert: Symphony No 8 ‘Unfinished’
Mozart: Mass in C minor, KV 427

Raphaël Pichon: conductor; Anna Dennis: soprano; Mhairi Lawson: soprano; Robin Tritschler: tenor; Christian Immler: baritone

SCO Chorus; Gregory Batsleer: chorus director

Schubert’s two symphonic movements have always seemed perfect in themselves, a conversation between darkness and the frail light of lyric inspiration. The best known ‘unfinished’ work for chorus and orchestra is Mozart’s Requiem but his C minor Mass of 1782 has proved resistant to successful completion. What we have, though, is full of inspiration, above all in the sublime Et incarnatus est which was sung by Mozart’s then-fiancée Constanze at the first performance. This concert marks the UK guest conducting debut of former countertenor Raphaël Pichon.
