These are the ultimate hymns of praise: Mozart pays homage to Maria in “Exsultate, jubilate“, Handel to Reason in “As Steals the Morn“, and Mendelssohn to God‘s works in “Lobgesang“. This makes for a moving Advent experience with Andreas Stoehr and his musicians.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Exsultate, jubilate, K 165
Georg Friedrich Handel: As Steals the Morn, from “L’Allegro, il penseroso ed il moderato”, HWV 55
Felix Mendelssohn: Lobgesang. Symphony-Cantata in b flat major, op. 52
December without Christmas kitsch: Mendelssohn’s Symphony-Cantata “Lobgesang“ is a work praising God for people of all confessions in the concert hall. Andreas Stoehr conducts the tremedous Symphony-Cantata in two parts: the symphony before, the cantata after the interval. The concert begins with the rejoicing of the soloists in Mozart’s Latin Motet, originally written for a Milan opera star, and in Handel’s most beautiful duet.
