THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Venue: Albert Hall, Nottingham Kishani Jayasinghe & Jane Harrington, sopranos Sarah Tenant-Flowers & Jonathan Tilbrook, conductors SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No.5 MOZART ‘Great’ Mass in C minor, K427 The University Philharmonia opens the concert with Shostakovich’s dramatic, moving, and deeply personal Fifth Symphony, a work which received over half an hour’s applause at its première. One of the tragedies of music history is that Mozart’s Mass in C Minor K427 (1782) was abandoned before completion. Those movements and fragments which remain are of brilliant conception, testament to a composer at the height of his imaginative powers and, free at last from the constraints imposed upon him by his former Salzburg employer Archbishop Colloredo, able to explore these within a large-scale sacred work which justifiably earns its epithet the ‘Great’ mass. The concert finishes at approximately 9.20pm
