Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Vespers is a masterpiece of profoundly expressive and lyrical composition with shining, brilliant baroque allegros. Mozart wrote the Vespers in Salzburg when he was 24 years old, shortly after his mother had died in Paris. As with several other compositions from this period, he used this piece to work through his grief, especially apparent in the ‘Laudate Dominum’, described as one of Mozart’s finest tunes.
Also being performed will be a selection of stunning and sublime works by contemporary Norwegian composer, Ola Gjeilo.
