Mozart, Messe en ut
Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne & Orchestre de Chambre de Genève
At the helm of the Geneva Chamber Orchestra and the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne, Daniel Reuss has chosen two pieces by Mozart that could almost be termed romantic.
The Dutch-German conductor, known for his exactitude and the precision of his phrasing, will perform the famed Symphony No. 40, a piece where tragic, impassioned accents rival the ground-breaking sonority of the wind instruments as they take centre stage.
A quartet of solo singers will then join the Swiss choir and instrumentalists as they launch into the Great Mass in C Minor, a vast, Handel-inspired epic that embodies the noble and spiritual breath of a composer transported by the sublime.
