If you think Mozart’s Requiem is outstanding, you won’t want to miss hearing his Grand Mass in C Minor (K.427), the “Grand Mass,” which is even more ambitious and powerful.
Scottsdale Musical Arts will present the Grand Mass on March 16 and 18 at churches in Paradise Valley and Scottsdale.
Unlike many of Mozart's other compositions, the C Minor Mass was not commissioned. Mozart wrote it purely for his own enjoyment. Based on his letters, many speculate that Mozart wrote the mass partially in thanks to God following good events in his life. These included his marriage to Constanze Weber, the birth of their first child and Constanze's recovery from illness.
Whether he wrote the Mass in gratitude to God or just to prove something to his father, we now have the rare opportunity to hear this glorious work right here in Phoenix.
