Thames Philharmonic Choir - Beethoven Mass in C major, Mozart Solemn Vespers K339 - CANCELLED
28 Mar 2020
New Music Director Harry Bradford will make his Cadogan Hall debut on 28 March with Thames Philharmonic Choir. The occasion will mark the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth with a performance of his Mass in C major.
Written in 1807, the work was commissioned by none other than Haydn’s former employer, Prince Nikolaus Esterházy who, it is understood, was not too pleased with the result, probably in part due to his unfamiliarity with Beethoven’s slightly darker, richer harmonic and melodic language.
Mozart’s Solemn Vespers of 1780 on the other hand depicts a simpler and characteristically vivacious emotional palette combining Mozartian wit and flare with sumptuous melodic lines, demonstrated most notably in the famous soprano aria Laudate Dominum.
Harry Bradford became TPC's Music Director in September 2019, having already established a reputation for choral conducting with Genesis Sixteen and at Cambridge University.
