Mozart’s Mass in C minor is one of the great unfinished pieces. Given the pressures he was under at the time perhaps this is not surprising – a famous public figure in celebrity-conscious Vienna with pressing domestic demands and constant financial insecurity. Libby Burgess’ lecture will explore these and other fascinating aspects of Mozart’s life and how they shaped his music.
Admission Free. No advance booking or tickets. Entry subject to availability.
A small display kindly organised by the Minster Library relating to Mozart and his
times will be on show in the Chapter House passage throughout the Festival.
