Shostakovich Festive Overture Op 96
Mozart Symphony No 31 in D (‘Paris’)
Mozart Coronation Mass
Requiem Aeternam: Fauré & Michael Haydn
Saturday 28 March 2020
On 28 March at 7.30pm in York Minster, York Musical Society Chorus and Orchestra will perform Fauré's Requiem and Michael Haydn's Requiem in C minor: two requiems in one concert, but separated by over 100 years and very different in style.
Fauré’s ever-popular and well-loved Requiem, first performed in 1890, uses a shortened version of the funeral mass and is serene, calm and peaceful (and full of haunting melodies). Michael Haydn is the lesser-known younger brother of Josef Haydn. His rarely performed but exquisite Reguiem is said to have inspired Mozart’s own final work.
Come and savour these distinct interpretations with the 120+ voices of York Musical Society, conducted by David Pipe. Soloists are: Anna Prosser (soprano), Kate Symonds-Joy (mezzo-soprano), Robert Anthony Gardiner (tenor), Alex Ashworth (baritone).
Tickets: Nave £25/20; Aisle £12 (age 13-17 £6, accompanied children under 12 free); from York Minster Box Office (www.yorkminster.org or 01904 557256) or on the door.
