The monumental Mass in B minor by J.S. Bach is regarded by many as “the greatest musical masterpiece of all time”. One of the supreme achievements in the composer’s religious musical path, it represents faith as inspiration. In order to present this spectacular work in its best, there will be a special Festival Baroque Orchestra formed by musicians from all over Europe, together with Chamber Choir “Preludiu – Vociu Enăchescu” – România. The cast of soloists is impressive – the Canadian soprano, Heather Newhous, with specializations in London and Lyon, First Prize winner at the Concours international de chant baroque in Froville; the Austrian mezzosoprano Hermine Haselböck, Professor of Voice at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and in Graz, she had worked with conductors such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Kirill Petrenko and Christian Thielemann; the tenor Franz Gürtelschmied, who was born and studied in Vienna and recently had debuted at several prestigious stages in Europe and US, and the baritone Klemens Sander, a winner of the Richard Tauber Prize (Wigmore Hall London,) as well as of the International Schumann Competition Zwickau. The concert will be conducted by Martin Sieghart, who started his career as an assistant to G. Rozhdestvensky, then as a conductor of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Chief Conductor of the Bruckner Orchestra Linz, and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra among others. A magnificent traditional concert for your “not to miss” list since Bach’s Mаss in h moll is rarely performed.
