Mozart première

The world première of Mozart’s Mass in C minor on period instruments is to be performed by Leeds Baroque Orchestra on Sunday 16 November at 2.30pm in the Great Hall. Putting the score together has been a two-year labour of love for professor of composition Phil Wilby. “Mozart wrote the piece to celebrate his own wedding, but never finished it,” said Professor Wilby. “He vowed he would, but it was broken up and used in other works. I’ve unravelled these to recreate it in its original form.”
Tickets £7 & £10 from, from the school of music or on the door.


Apologies to the faculty of performance, visual arts and communications which was wrongly named in the last Reporter (p8).
