Program:
MOZART Mass in C minor, K.427
OLA GJEILO World Premiere, commissioned by Albany Pro Musica

Considered by many the greatest sacred piece composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, his Mass in C Minor is written for the largest orchestral forces of any of his sacred works. The famous virtuosi coloratura Et incarnates est, the masterful use of counterpoint, and the sublime beauty of this work are only a few reasons why this piece has become known as the Great Mass.
Albany Pro Musica is proud to present on this program the world premiere of a new commissioned work for chorus and string orchestra by APM Composer-in-Residence Ola Gjeilo.

“I’m thrilled to be composer-in-residence with Albany Pro Musica, a great ensemble and organization with innovative and exciting programming.” – Ola Gjeilo
