Austrian Masters - Haydn & Bruckner

19:30 Winchester Cathedral

​The Waynflete Singers perform Bruckner’s Mass in F minor, a work composed in 1867 as a thanksgiving for his return to health after a long-term depressive-obsessive illness. Bruckner revised the work several times after its completion, his final revision being in 1893. Of all his settings of the Mass, the F minor is the biggest, a work which combines the classical structures of Haydn and Mozart with the lyricism of Schubert and the adventurousness of Liszt and Wagner. The soloists include two Waynflete Prizewinners from the 2019 Grange Festival Singing Competition: Jaeil Kim (tenor) and Jerome Knox (bass-baritone). The wonderful welsh soprano Elin Pritchard is also singing.

Before the Bruckner the WS are delighted to welcome the internationally acclaimed cellist Natalie Clein, who will perform Haydn’s Cello Concerto no. 1 in C. A former BBC Young Musician winner, her passionate performances of the cello repertoire with orchestras around the world have earned her the admiration of both audiences and critics. Natalie’s appearance with the WS and English Chamber Orchestra in Winchester Cathedral promises to be a welcome highlight as we return to public performances.
