Mozart: Great Mass in C minor
CATHÉDRALE SAINT-LOUIS DES INVALIDES
In 1783, Mozart began to write a Mass, with the idea that his wife Constance, whom he had just married after a few ups and downs, could sing the solo. This is the Mass in C minor. Set in superb clairs obscurs, this masterpiece bears witness to his discovery of Bach and Handel, but also to the exceptional lyrical genius that so nourished his operas. Although it remains unfinished, it is today one of the pinnacles of all polyphonic music. The four soloists, accompanied by the Paris Mozart Orchestra conducted by Claire Gibault, give voice to its unalterable beauty for an exceptional evening.
