Mozart Requiem and a World Premiere by Ola Gjeilo

November 5, 2017
4:00 pm
Canada College Main Theatre

Join us for this double bill concert combining a World Premiere by Ola Gjeilo, one of the most loved composers of contemporary choral music, and one of the most beautiful and enduring classical works of all time—the profoundly moving, enigmatic Requiem by Mozart. Gjeilo transports the shiveringly beautiful spirit of his native Norway’s landscape into his music. He’s known for his cinematic, evocative, radiant vocal textures and richly-colored, entrancing harmonies. It is a phenomenal coup for Masterworks Chorale to present this brand new commission. Almost 200 years before Gjeilo was born, Mozart lay on his death bed, attempting to finish this complex, emotional work before his own death overtook him. His Requiem is a masterpiece of drama, intensity and depth. The chance to hear this thrilling music live, with all the warmth, passion and technical skill which Masterworks Chorale brings to their concerts, is an opportunity not to be missed!
