Beethoven, Mass in C major
Can there be a bigger red-letter day than Beethoven’s 250th birthday? Duncan Ward, Insula orchestra’s fourth guest conductor, opens the concert with Mozart’s celebrated Symphony n° 39, before taking on Beethoven’s Mass in C Major. Less often performed than the Missa solemnis, this earlier work is already striking for its fervour and vocal power.
