Mozart’s iconic Great Mass in C Minor, K. 427 contrasts in beautiful and surprising ways with Beethoven’s Elegiac Song, op. 118 and Haydn’s Symphony No. 86 in D Minor. The C Minor Mass was unique in its time for the work’s magnificent choruses, sensuous solo movements, and large ensemble. Paired with Mozart’s masterpiece is Beethoven’s brief and tender Elegiac Song—a musical gem often overlooked among Beethoven’s grander works—and Haydn’s sumptuous Symphony No. 86.
