Dr Elizabeth Scott conducts this magnificent masterwork

Performed by the Festival of Voices Classical Choral Workshop choir conducted by Dr Elizabeth Scott (NSW) and accompanied by an extended Hobart Chamber Orchestra.

Never before performed in Hobart, Mozart’s Mass in C minor (often referred to as the Great Mass) is one of his most revered works. The powerful Great Mass reveals Mozart at his peak and is a complex masterpiece. Its mood shifts constantly – sometimes dazzling, sometimes movingly sombre. The six movements of this work embody the Salzburg traditions of the era, demonstrating Bach and Handel’s influence on Mozart, whose music he was studying at the time. The Great Mass stands alongside his Requiem as one of the most remarkable church compositions.   

There remains an aura of mystery about the completion of the Great Mass following Mozart’s death. Widely programmed worldwide today, it was first performed in St Peter’s Church, Salzburg, in 1783 with Constance, Mozart’s wife, as one of the soprano soloists. 

The Festival of Voices Classical Choral Workshop choir will perform the Great Mass alongside soloists Lana Kains, Lisa Crosato, Joshua Oxley, and Benjamin Hayward Segal. 

This concert program includes an exciting community project that is a festival first. Participants from our Come Sing Mozart workshop will perform three carefully selected Mozart choral favourites with an extended Hobart Chamber Orchestra, also conducted by Dr Elizabeth Scott. 

“I am very much looking forward to conducting one of the most beautiful and celebrated choral works in the classical repertoire – Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor. This work is both a joy to listen to as well as to sing – it is Mozart at the absolute height of his brilliance.”

– Dr Elizabeth Scott
