Some years, David has performed in the Festival Chorus (for local amateurs: there's also the Chorale, which is made up of professionals). Not this year, I don't recall why. We don't attend performances every year—which, there again, I don't know why. We should! It's a top-notch musical event.
Today's program included the exquisite Adagietto of Mahler's Symphony No. 5, John Tavener's gorgeous mostly–a cappella Mother and Child, and—the main event—Mozart's rousing Mass in C Minor, K. 427. A wonderful program, and a wonderful performance with the orchestra, Chorale, and four soloists.
Here's the Kyrie from the Mass (just sound):
I was raised on Mozart. Also Bach, Haydn, Handel. But mostly Mozart. Anytime I hear Mozart, it makes me happy. The only operas I really enjoy (well, besides Carmen) are Mozart's. My father especially loved the piano concertos—and of them, especially the 21st, K. 467. The Andante was used in the Danish movie Elvira Madigan (1967), which made it famous. But for me, it was already beloved.
