Andrew Griffiths conductor
BACH Mass in B minor
The Sheffield International Concert Season joins orchestra and chorus for a night of Classical Music with guest soloists for the Mass in B Minor Concert.
For Hubert Parry, the B minor Mass was “the mightiest choral work ever written”, while for the organist and philosopher Albert Schweitzer it was “as enigmatic and unfathomable as the religious consciousness of its creator”. Assembled by Bach near the end of his life from his earlier settings of the Lutheran Mass, it is a work replete with great arias, uplifting choruses and thrilling orchestral writing, the trumpet lines being particularly stunning, and is a summation of the composer’s entire creative output. A remarkable experience is in store, under the spirited direction of Andrew Griffiths.
