Journey to Central Europe

Saturday 21 September 2013, 8:00 pm 
Town Hall at the Dunedin Centre
Presented by Southern Sinfonia

Vienna, Salzburg and Prague feature prominently in the early history of this performance. Mozart's Mass in C Minor - The Great Mass, composed in Vienna in 1782 but premièred in Salzburg in 1783, has been described as having "dark-toned and solemn, forthright and vigorous choruses, sumptuous solo arias, and ensembles of ornate, operatic radiance." With our four soloists (all trained in Dunedin) and Southern Youth Choir, we celebrate City Choir Dunedin's 150th anniversary year.

London-based Simon Over will also conduct Dvořák's Symphony No. 6. The work perfectly balances Czech folk sentiment and the classical symphony structure, and some consider it Dvořák's orchestral masterpiece.

Soloists: Anna Leese, Emma Fraser, Benjamin Madden and Joel Amosa
