Franz Schubert: Mass in A flat major, D 678 / Magnificat in C major, D 486 / Tantum Ergo, D 962
Andrés Orozco-Estrada revives the tradition of the styriarte church concerts in Stainz. During the Beethoven cycle of the 2016 styriarte, he and Concentus Musicus got along so well that the idea of a Schubert programme was born. At the heart of it all: Schubert’s greatest masses in the original sound of his time. “I still have the intent of dedicating it to the Emperor or Empress, because I find it excellent”. Schubert’s dream did not come true. What would Emperor Franz have made of this earthquake of faith? But it is perfect material for a volcano on the stand of a conductor like Orozco-Estrada.
Before the performance, you are invited to a traditional Schilcher reception in the castle courtyard, courtesy of Stainz town council.
