About This Performance
For listeners used to the brawny drama of Beethoven’s Fifth and the epic vision of his Missa solemnis, the composer’s Mass in C may surprise with its tranquility and beauty. In contrast, Haydn’s most performed Mass is highly dramatic, with a soaring soprano solo and masterfully interwoven choral lines.
The May 25 performance is generously underwritten by Performance Patrons Eva and Marc Stern.
