Petite Messe Solenelle on 29 September

Our next concert: Rossini's Petite Messe Solenelle


Saturday 29 September, 7:30pm at
Knox Church



City of Dunedin Choir and soloists present Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle with accompaniment on two pianos and organ, conducted by David Burchell. We look forward to performing with our favourite artists:

Emma Fraser - soprano, Amanda Cole - Mezzo-soprano, Matthew Wilson - tenor, Julien van Mellaerts - bass
Pianists: John van Buskirk and Sandra Crawshaw
Organist: Simon Mace

Rossini, the 19th century Italian composer, was known for his sense of humour. So it is that his Petite Messe Solennelle is neither little, nor solemn. Although of a sacred nature, it is unmistakably operatic in style, abounding in memorable tunes and rhythmic vitality. It is an elegant and refined work.
