Haydn Te Deum, Mozart Vespers K 339, Beethoven Mass in C

October 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Book tickets now
Cadogan Hall,
5 Sloane Terrace SW1X 9DQ
+ Google Map

These three magnificent choral works from the Viennese classical period are performed
by top soloists, one of London’s finest choirs, Goldsmiths Choral Union, and the period
instrumentalists of Musicians of London. Haydn’s brilliant Te Deum was first performed
in 1800 in celebration of a visit to Austria by Lord Nelson. Mozart’s Vespers, written in
Salzburg around 1780, features his well-loved setting of Laudate Dominum. Beethoven’s
Mass in C, dating from 1807, is one of the most passionate of classical settings,
powerfully pushing the musical boundaries towards Romanticism.

Summer Concert – Schubert & Brahms, St John’s Smith Square

June 22 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 pm
Book tickets now
St John's Smith Square,
Smiths Square London SW1P 3HA

Alice Gribbin soprano
Ida Ränzlöv alto
William Wallace tenor
Hugo Herman-Wilson bass

Two of these three beautiful Romantic choral works feature arrangements made by Brahms for piano duet. Brahms’ Requiem has become very popular recently in his piano duet version, but his magnificent Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) was also published in this format, and tonight’s is possible its first UK performance.

Brahms was also the editor of the first complete edition of Schubert’s works, and he also published Schubert’s great Mass in Eb in a version for piano duet. These duet versions were meant for domestic performance, but are wonderfully crafted in their own right.

The opener, Schubert’s superb creation Mirjams Siegesgesang (Song of Victory) for soprano and chorus, exists only in a very difficult solo piano version. He almost certainly intended to orchestrate the work, and, to complete our trilogy in the spirit of Brahms, our pianists have devised their own playable duet version.

Tickets available online or from St John’s Smith Square on 020 7222 1061
