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.

Handel and Haydn Society, Harry Christophers

In the autumn of 2010 CORO will release a brand new recording of Mozart’s Mass in C minor featuring Harry Christophers in his role as Artistic Director and conductor of the Handel and Haydn Society - America’s oldest continuously performing orchestra and chorus - with celebrated soloists, including Gillian Keith.

In September 2008 Harry Christophers was appointed Artistic Director of Boston’s internationally-acclaimed Handel and Haydn Society. Founded in 1815, the Society premiered key works by Handel, Bach and Haydn in America, has won a Grammy Award and also has a place in the American Classical Music Hall of Fame. Harry has worked with the Society since 2006 and his inaugural concert as Artistic Director was in December 2009 with Handel’s Messiah.

Mozart’s Mass in C minor is one of the best-known and most widely performed of the composer’s mass settings and is generally considered to be one of his greatest works and, as such, is often referred to as the ‘Great Mass’. Unlike many of his other works the Mass was not a commission and Mozart wrote it purely for his own pleasure. It is a remarkable union of musical vision and religious text and draws on Mozart’s skill for drama that made his operatic works such a phenomenal success.

The Mass in C minor rightly justifies its illustrious place in the pantheon of sacred choral music.

“Onstage, Christophers has what it takes to inspire the Society’s fine musicians.” The Wall Street Journal

“The scale of Mozart's conception comes across clearly; there's grandeur and theatricality, combined with clarity in both the choral counterpoint and all the orchestral textures” The Guardian, 26th August 2010 ***

“The musical history of Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society goes back to 1815, though no bones creak in Harry Christophers’ radiant, lively account of Mozart’s “Great Mass”. The score mixes back-to-baroque counterpoint with operatic display: a bewitching blend, in safe hands with Christophers’ mobile chorus and period-instrument band.” The Times, 4th September 2010 ****

“The mixed voices of Boston's Handel and Haydn Society are fully equal to Mozart's florid choral writing...It offers a snapshot of America's oldest concert-giving ensemble...but also presents a commanding and compelling reading of an important if often overlooked monument in Mozart's musical development.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2010

“[Christophers] fields an impressive period-instrument orchestra, and a game and regularly strong choir...Of the soloists, the finest is Gillian Keith, consistently graceful and utterly winning in the 'Et incarnatus est'” BBC Music Magazine, December 2010 ***

“A live concert recording, this carries all the frisson of musicians playing with the knowledge that they've only got one crack at it. It's evident that they feel and understand this music right to its core...The soloists are a perfect match for the overall grandeur.” Classic FM Magazine, December 2010 ****

Chamber Choir of Europe & Camerata Würzburg, Nicol Matt

The Chamber Choir of Europe under Nicol Matt has become recognised as one of the finest choirs in the world.

Mozart commenced work on this Mass without the usual commission. In fact he said he was writing it to celebrate his marriage to Constanze, who was also pregnant with their first child. Constanze was a singer of considerable ability, and the soprano part in this Mass is technically very difficult. We know from the diary of Mozart’s sister Nannerl that Constanze did sing the work. The music in this Mass far outstrips that of any previous setting he had written. First, it is on a scale hitherto unheard of. Secondly, the harmonic and contrapuntal elements display a daring and brilliance that are remarkable even by this composer’s standards. Thirdly, unlike the previous Masses, this work has a distinctly personal feel to it. The music is very emotional, sometimes anguished, and often staggeringly beautiful. At this time in his life, Mozart was a happy man. However, the Mass was never completed. We have the Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus and Benedictus. The Credo is only partial, and the Agnus Dei missing altogether. Why did Mozart abandon it? A cooling of his faith or love perhaps? The baby Raimund Leopold died on 19 August 1783, and on 25 August the completed parts of the Mass were performed with Constanze taking part. Nannerl’s diary records the concert, and that her brother left afterwards. He lived another eight years, but this was the last time brother and sister ever saw each other. Mozart rescued most of the music to set to Italian words in the oratorio Davidde penitente. The great C minor torso stands as one of his supreme masterpieces.
