1a. MELBOURNE: Mozart Requiem

    One of the greatest choral works, Mozart’s Requiem (K626) is rarely heard using the instruments of the composer’s time. Classical instruments give a quite different orchestral timbre. The basset horns known to Mozart have a plaintive singing quality. There is no modern equivalent. Written during the final weeks of the composer’s life for a patron who wished to remain anonymous, this unfinished work is shrouded in mystery. Also on the program is Palestrina’s Stabat Mater. This is a one hour program without interval.

2. MIDDLE PARK: True Romantics

    Why is light cast upon the sorrowful? These are the first words of Brahms’ Motet Op.74. And the answer unfolds as one listens to the program. Throughout history, when composers have dwelt on emotions of sadness and longing, they have produced some of the most movingly beautiful and uplifting music. Taking in a broad range of music, from Monteverdi Madrigals to Ravel’s luscious Chansons, the program includes Elgar’s arrangement for voices of Nimrod from his Enigma Variations and Samuel Barber’s haunting vocal version of his Adagio for Strings.

3. BRIGHTON:
A Baroque Christmas

    In European countries across the centuries, Christmas has been marked by vibrant and joyous music-making. Serious composers would compete with each other to write music with the maximum popular appeal for adults and children alike. In this program, Douglas Lawrence presents his selection of the most entertaining Christmas music from the late 1500s to the late 1700s, with music by Bach (In dulci jubilo, Singet dem Herren, O Jesulein süss), Byrd, Handl, Palestrina, Praetorius, Marenzio, Schütz and Scheidt.
