Beethoven Symphony No 3 in E flat ‘Eroica’

Soloist Paul Killby
Conductor  Tadeusz Kaznowski
Leader  Fiona Hutchins

A performance of the Eroica Symphony is always special, but teamed with the less frequently heard Bassoon concerto by Weber and Schubert’s 5th Symphony, said to have been written during a period of particular infatuation with Mozart’s music, our summer concert offers a treat for the ears.

Norwich Cathedral Chamber Choir
Norwich Cathedral Players

Keswick Hall Choir Saturday 28 April

Saturday 28 April – Mozart Requiem and Haydn Theresa Mass

The last concert of our season, in the generous acoustic of St John’s RC Cathedral, presents two great choral works by the Classical masters, Haydn & Mozart. Haydn’s Maria Theresa Mass is one of his six great Masses from 1790s Vienna. Written in 1799, just after The Creation and the Nelson Mass, it reflects the influence of Baroque music on his choral writing, with monumental fugues together with highly dramatic and lyrical music. Mozart’s Requiem Mass, written in 1791, was famously left unfinished at his death. Various people have made completions over the years, but we shall be using the version completed by Franz Süssmayr, a contemporary of Mozart.

We are pleased to welcome back four young soloists, Andrea Tweedale (soprano), Fiona Mackay (alto), Tom Morss (tenor) and Matthew Palmer (bass), as well as the Academy of St Thomas.

Venue: Cathedral of St John the Baptist
Time: 7.45 pm
Tickets: Front Nave £17 / Rear Nave £14 / students £8 / U14s £2 (buy tickets)
