A joyful program of Mozart masterpieces. The title piece is the celebratory Coronation Mass, so named because it became the preferred music for imperial coronations, including for two Habsburg emperors. The joyous motet Exsultate, jubilate, for solo soprano and orchestra, returns to our programming after many years, with Andrea Lauren Brown as soloist. And lastly, two works composed in Vienna during Mozart’s happiest and most productive years, the exciting Linz Symphony, featured in our programming for the first time, and the virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 21, performed by the Maestro on St. Katharine’s magnificent Bösendorfer grand piano.

Running time: 90 minutes, no intermission
