On Friday the 22nd of March, LCS and Hackney Singers will be returning to the Royal Festival Hall at the world-famous Southbank Centre.
Joining us for Mozart’s Mass in C Minor are the London Mozart Players, and an impressive array of soloists including soprano Elin Manahan Thomas – who sang at the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May.
The programme also includes Brahms’ lyrical Schicksalslied and Schumann’s Piano Concerto, and we look forward to returning to the Royal Festival Hall after three near sell-out performances, the last being in 2017.
The musical breadth of Mozart’s Mass is dazzling: from the solemn Kyrie to the fast and furious Cum Sancto fugue and ravishing solo movements, this is undoubtedly one of Mozart’s greatest choral works.
Brahms’ Schicksalslied too is a work of contrasts: a lyrical opening movement gives way to dramatic turbulence before a serene orchestral finale. Schumann’s sparkling Piano Concerto needs no introduction!
