Mozart’s “Great” Mass

E.J. Thomas Hall 198 Hill Street, Akron, OH, United States

The C Minor Mass is Mozart’s most exalted and personal sacred work. He composed it for his own wedding, partly to display the beauty of his bride’s soprano voice. He wrote the Mass in a burst of inspiration, fueled by his discovery of choral masterworks by Bach and Handel. Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin brings dances of the Baroque master to life, while serving as a tour-de-force vehicle for a virtuoso ensemble. Lili Boulanger was one of the brightest—and shortest-lived—talents of the early twentieth century. Her pastoral orchestral poem, On a Spring Morning, can only make us wish for what might been, had she lived beyond the age of 24.
