A Moment’s Pause – Chaos
Sacred music from different cultures / Vienna Boys' Choir

arrow

They have been singing masses and motets in Vienna’s Hofburgkapelle for more than 500 years – a repertoire which ranges from the medieval to the modern, and reflects the history of Western music. Sacred music is not just confined to Christendom. In this series of concerts, the Vienna Boys’ Choir offer an exciting glimpse into spiritual music from other cultures.

Accompanied by the specially formed Schubert-Akademie, the Vienna Boys’ Choir appear at MuTh performing masses by Mozart, Haydn, Victoria, Schubert and Wirth. These are matched with hymns, Jewish songs, Indian Bhajans, Qawwalis from Pakistan, songs by shamans and medicine men, and overtone meditations.

Each concert focuses on a particular subject. In this second season, the topics addressed are despair, courage, fear and chaos.

In addition, philosophers, writers, actors, scientists and politicians will read short texts and join with the audience in thinking about what has been heard.

Programme:
Franz Schubert: Messe B flat major, D 324 (1815), Gerald Wirth: Missa (Premiere performance)
