A18 Mozart Requiem with Bath Festival Orchestra

Sat 13 May, 2023 at 7:30 pm until 9:00 pm

The Bath Festival 2023

In the first half of this concert BBC Radio 3 presenter Sarah Mohr-Pietch takes us under the bonnet of the BFO. We shine a spotlight on the individual components and curiosities of an orchestra with musical examples illustrating how Mozart and his contemporaries had a titanic influence on musical language and orchestration – which lasts to this day.

After the interval the orchestra is joined by renowned local choir Bath Camerata for a performance of Mozart’s perfectly incomplete requiem with an array of exceptional soloists and unforgettable tunes.

Programme to include:

A selection of music including Marianna Martinez Opening from ‘Dixit Dominus’, Bruckner Locus Iste, Hans Andre Stamm Fanfare for Organ and Two Trumpets, and Mozart Divertimento K. 136
