An unforgettable audiovisual journey across Van Gogh and Klimt’s Europe. Music by the Netherlands Chamber Choir and video art by the Italian fuse*.
With the performance of Bruckner’s impressive Mass in E minor, the Nederlands Kamerkoor is fulfilling a long-cherished wish. Under the direction of none other than Hartmut Haenchen, and in collaboration with the wind section of Haenchen’s ever reliable Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, Bruckner’s masterpiece realises its full potential. The Mass in E minor, described as ‘unparalleled in the 19th and 20th centuries’, is compelling and grand, and at the same time moving and immediate. In 1866 Bruckner was commissioned by the bishop of Linz to compose the Mass, which led to a wonderful amalgamation of Late Romantic music and ecclesiastical influences. In the remainder of the programme Haenchen explores the world of music for choir and wind instruments, ranging from Brahms’ majestic Begräbnisgesang (Funeral Song) to Mozart’s Serenade, finishing off in grand style with his Mass in E minor.
