Don't miss Schumann’s "Requiem" and Haydn’s "Paukenmesse" (Mass in the Time of War) with the Masterwork Festival Chorus, professional soloists, and the New York City Chamber Orchestra, led by esteemed conductors Heather Mitchell and Eliza Rubenstein at world-renowned Carnegie Hall! Enjoy our exclusive $5 Meetup tickets (value $90-110).
After the Schumanns moved to Dusseldorf towards the end of his life, Robert Schumann became interested in the musical forms of the Catholic church, and the Mass and the Requiem. Schumann’s "Requiem" moves from majestic and internal to terrifying, and similar to Mozart, Schumann began composing a Mass for the dead during a time of illness and other hardships, and he expressed his fears that it was his own Requiem that he was writing.
Haydn's compelling "Missa in tempore belli" (Mass in the Time of War), is one of the most popular of Haydn’s fourteen mass settings. Known also as the "Paukenmesse" due to the dramatic and driving use of timpani (pauken) throughout, the masterwork culminates in a beautiful celebration of peace with “Dona Nobis Pacem.” Prasied for her "expert direction," and that "musically and technically, she has it all," Eliza Rubenstein will conduct this masterwork.
The concert will also feature a performance from the National Children’s Festival Chorus led by conductor Robyn Lana in a selection of short choral works including Bach's "Bist du bei mir", Abbie Betinis's "Be Like a Bird", and more. Robyn Reeves Lana is the Founder, Managing Artistic Director and Conductor of the award winning Cincinnati Children’s Choir (CCC), Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music Preparatory Department (CCM).
