ConcertoValiante Baroque and the Leids Kamerkoor perform works by masters of classical music. The varied program opens with the inspiring overture of Le nozze di Figaro, one of the top operas by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
In Joseph Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis, the choir and soloists join the orchestra. Haydn himself simply called this work Missa. It was nicknamed Nelson Mass in the 19th century because when Haydn was composing the mass, the British led by Admiral Nelson defeated Napoleon. The trumpets in the Benedictus were seen as a symbol of British victory. In reality, Haydn had already finished the mass when the news broke, but the name stuck.
The first part of Dixit Dominus by baroque composer Georg Friedrich Händel is next on the programme. This is Handel’s setting of Psalm 110 The LORD said unto my Lord. The then 22-year-old composer incorporated the insights that he had gained during his studies of Italian opera.
Arvo Pärt is one of the greatest contemporary classical composers. Two days after the Madrid attacks in March 11, 2004, he began composing Da pacem Domine, “Give us peace, Lord.” Leids Kamerkoor will sing this contemplative work for you.
