Rochester Choral Society presents Sing and Discover Day: Mozart myths and misconceptions with John Hancorn and Richard Wigmore
It is a quirk of musical history that Mozart's two greatest choral works, the C Minor Mass and the Requiem, remained unfinished. Mystery and speculation still surround these works, composed at either end of Mozart's decade in Vienna. In our study day, conductor John Hancorn and writer-musicologist Richard Wigmore will explore the biographical background of these masterpieces and attempt to untangle known facts from Romantic myth. Through recordings, we shall compare assorted attempts to complete the Mass and Requiem. Amid the discovery, John will rehearse the choir in choruses that range from the sombre opening of the Requiem to the resplendent 'Cum sancto spiritu' of the Mass, the most monumental chorus that Mozart ever wrote.
