Peter Manning will give his Conducting debut with the Malta Philharmonic on 8th February 2019 in a performance of Mozart’s Great C minor Mass (K427) for Choir and Orchestra in the Metropolitan Cathedral of St Paul, Malta.
The Great Mass is the penultimate musical setting of the mass penned by Mozart, and like its only successor – the Requiem – it was left incomplete by the composer, missing the concluding Agnus Dei section in its entirety.
But the parts that were put to paper showcase Mozart at his finest and most ambitious. Written after his wife Constanze’s recovery from a serious illness, the work’s admirers include none other than Pope Francis, who said that the Et incarnatus est passage from the Credo section is “matchless: it lifts you to God.”
Time: 8:00 pm till 10:00 pm
