Mozart: Mass in C minor, K427 'Great'

on period instruments


“Writers on Mozart sometimes take him to task for the alleged mixture of style in the C minor Mass, in particular the use of florid, 'operatic' solo writing amidst all the severe ecclesiastical counterpoint.
To object is to misunderstand the nature of Mozart's religion, but it takes a performance as stylistically accomplished as this one to make the point in practice. The usual stumbling-block is the 'Et incarnatus', with its richly embellished solo line and its wind obbligatos. Sung as it is here, by Sylvia McNair, beautifully refined in detail, it's indeed passionate, but passionately devout.
McNair is deeply affecting in the 'Christe', taken quite spaciously and set in a measured Kyrie of great cumulative power which also has some fine, clean singing from the Monteverdi Choir.
As with Gardiner's version of the Requiem you might wish for the sound of a boys' choir (why go to the trouble of having authentic instruments if you then use unauthentic voices?) but the bright, forward tone of his sopranos is very persuasive.
The music is all strongly characterised: the 'Gloria' jubilant, the 'Qui tollis' grandly elegiac with its solemn, inexorable march rhythm and its dying phrases echoed between the choirs, the 'Credo' full of vitality. Some of the 'Cum sancto spiritu' fugue is too heavily accented, though.
Nevertheless, a confident recommendation.”

London Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, Sir Colin Davis

Sir Colin Davis' recordings of Mozart have stood the test of time and his readings of the composer's choral music are imposing, ennobling edifices of interpretation. The soloists in the Great Mass blend marvellously and the Ave Verum Corpus is given a reading of quiet intensity.

Les Sacqueboutiers De Toulouse & Les Arts Florissants, William Christie

“Throughout, Christie shows a characteristically keen feeling for gesture, and for the dance rhythms that underlie much of the score…the Credo and the 'Benedictus' quartet are uncommonly lithe and graceful. With the soloists finely matched in timbre and phrasing, the ensembles have a chamber musical refinement and delicacy…” Gramophone Magazine

A Ballet By Uwe Scholz


Kiyoko Kimura, Christoph Böhm, Oksana Kulchytska (dancers), Eunyee You (soprano), Marie-Claude Chappuis (soprano), Werner Güra (tenor) & Friedemann Röhlig (bass)

Leipzig Ballet, Choir of the Leipzig Opera & Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Balázs Kocsár

Recorded live at the Leipzig Opera, Leipzig, June 2005.

Uwe Scholz is one of the most brilliant choreographic minds of his generation – he died in November 2004 at the age of 45.

The Great Mass is one of the most impressive works of this important neoclassical Choreographer - a truly impressive requiem; a choreographic revelation.

The full length Choreography takes its name from Mozart's famous unfinished Mass in C minor and adds other works by the same composer, such as the Adagio and Fugue in C minor and the motet Ave verum corpus as well as passages of Gregorian chant, and sequences from contemporary music by György Kurtág, Thomas Jahn and Arvo Pärt.

The Leipzig Ballet is regarded as one of the best ballet companies worldwide.
