MOZART MEETS JENKINS ON 27 OCTOBER
Mozart Meets Jenkins at 3pm Sunday 27 October will be a concert with immense popular appeal.
Mozart is one of the most popular classical composers and according to The Arts Desk Global Survey, Karl Jenkins is the most performed living composer in the world today.
He is also one of the most versatile composers of our time composing experimental jazz, classical works, pop music, commercials, film scores and extremely popular classical-ethnic-ecclesiastic works.
In May last year Noosa Chorale performed Jenkins’, The Armed Man, and tributes poured in, one saying it was “the finest concert the choir had given in its 18-year history.”
Since then the Chorale has had many requests for more of Jenkins’ work. The Chorale will sing his Requiem in its next concert, which Music Director, Adrian King, has described as having “passages of sheer brilliance and astonishing beauty.”
He added, “The Jenkins’ Requiem was composed in 2005 and his approach is to blend two different global philosophies. He uses the traditional Latin text of the Requiem Mass to represent the West and includes a few surprises along the way, like five Japanese haiku poems to represent the East."
Jenkins music resonates with extraordinary empathy with our times.
"I adore Karl's compositions. From this quiet, gentle human being, comes the most amazing, haunting music that is instantly recognizable and loved across the world." Dame Kiri Te Kanawa
The Chorale is also performing two works by Mozart –his beautiful Solemn Vespers and excerpts from his Serenade No 9 often called The Post Horn.
Tchaikovsky summed up what many people feel about Mozart's music when he said, "Mozart is the highest, the culminating point that beauty has attained in the sphere of music."
Noosa Chorale, Music Director, Adrian King said the 70-member Chorale would be accompanied by Noosa Sinfonia.
“We are thrilled at having this opportunity of performing these three works by two great classical composers for Noosa choral music lovers,” he said.
