Mozart's Great Mass & Schumann's Piano Concerto

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Hackney Singers and Lewisham Choral Society, a combined choir of over 300 voices, return to Royal Festival Hall with a programme of masterworks, following three previous performances to packed halls.

They are joined by a distinguished line-up of artists, including Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas and the London Mozart Players, under the baton of Dan Ludford-Thomas.

Mozart’s late masterpiece, his Great Mass in C minor, was first performed with the composer’s wife Constanze as soloist. And 63 years later, it was Schumann’s wife Clara who premiered his lyrical Piano Concerto. Tonight’s pianist is the award-winning Nico de Villiers.

The concert opens with Brahms’s dramatic Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny).
