The opening concert of this year’s 4MBS Festival of Classics honouring Ludwig van Beethoven – whose 250th birthday is celebrated in 2020 – is also our opening concert for 2020. Our concert features two of his finest choral works, the short yet powerful late masterwork Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage, Op.112 and the popular Choral Fantasy, Op.80 which is generally thought of as the precursor of his monumental 9th Symphony. as well as the magnificent Mozart Requiem.
The second half of our concert consists of one of the greatest works in the choral repertory,
Mozart’s sublime and hauntingly beautiful Requiem in D minor, K.626.
