Bach Musica NZ proudly presents the New Zealand premiere of Schumann’s Requiem, op148, a 45-minute work composed in 1852 for four vocal soloists, a choir, and a symphony orchestra.
The concert will open with the Bassoon Concerto in C Major by Czech composer Johann Baptist Vanhal. His music was well respected by Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and Schubert.
Also included in this concert is “Unfinished” Symphony No 8 in B Minor, D 759. Sadly, Schubert never finished this work, yet this outstanding composition has risen to be one of the most popular compositions in the early romantic period.
