Choral Workshop 15-19 October 2014 in Italy
Choral Workshop on Lake Garda (Italy) 2014
W. A. Mozart - Coronation Mass, KV 317
Who is the International Oratorio Choir?
International Oratorio Choir is a great international choir participating in music projects.
Who can take part in the project?
Whole choirs or parts thereof with at least 10 singers
What are the terms and conditions for singers?
some rough knowledge of the piece (e.g. having worked through it yourself or indeed having performed it on a previous occasion)
commitment to attend all the rehearsals throughout the project phase
Which piece will be worked on together?
The Coronation Mass in C major (KV 317) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was most probably composed for the Easter service of 1779 at the Salzburg Cathedral. Immediately after his death this church composition, which was probably Mozartís most popular, became the preferred mass setting for services at imperial and royal coronations as well as at thanksgiving services.
The festive symphonic elements and the clear separation of solo and choir voices are typical of this mass. Through its musical expressiveness it surpasses all other Salzburg masses.
Where will the rehearsals be held?
On Lake Garda the International Oratorio Choir will be using the rehearsal rooms.
The lake presents a wonderful spectacle of natural luminescence and colours for an unforgettable musical event.
Where and when the concert will take place?
The concert will be held in Riva del Garda (Italy) on 18 October 2014 within the context of the 8th International Lago di Garda Music Festival.
