Meg Bragle, mezzo-soprano
Lawrence Wiliford, tenor
Michael Dean, bass-baritone
Hear the purity of Mozart’s spirit and expressive grace. The Symphony No. 40 is known for its rich and melodic writing filled with both joy and melancholy. Arguably his best vocal writing, the Mass in c minor, is filled with brilliant arias and choruses.
Mozart considered the Great Mass to be some of his own favorite sacred music ever written. After a contentious marriage to Constanze Weber (they had been living together out of wedlock and she got a prenup) Mozart wrote Symphony No. 40 for her soprano voice to help show off her talent and win over his hometown. Her full name was Maria Constanze Cäcilia Josepha Johanna Aloysia Mozart.
