The powerful Great Mass in C Minor reveals Mozart at the height of his brilliance, mercurial as ever as he confronts formidable themes with fantastic writing.

A work of mysterious origins, the Great Mass is a layered, shimmering tapestry. Moods shift constantly, sometimes dazzling, sometimes movingly sombre. It’s a soul wrestling with what it means to be alive. Maybe that’s why we are drawn back to this masterpiece.

Conductor Masaaki Suzuki, an expert in choral repertoire, negotiates this enormous work with a striking vision, allowing us to connect with this music of transcendent beauty.

In contrast, enjoy the sparkling wit of Mozart’s gripping Overture from Don Giovanni – a story of a young playboy who ends up in hell. Together with his Linz Symphony this program offers an unforgettable glimpse of Mozart’s irrepressible genius.
