Mozart's Messes brèves and works by the Haydn brothers

What could be more subtle than letting music transmit, without words, the ideas of the divine text?
The programme of this concert invites us to experience this questioning, with Mozart's Masses breves KV 192 and KV 194, each adopting a different position. Haydn's Te Deum No.1 in C major and Mozart's Ave verum KV 618 seek synthesis. In this they respond to the ideal of balance considered indispensable to beauty by 18th century society. The expression brought back to the essential then touches the most intimate.

"The brevity of these Salzburg masses, probably due to an officiant who preferred the speed of the services to the heavy and endless pump of the great masses, allows us to play two of them in the same evening. Adding prelude, gradual, offertory and motet of communion will be a child's play and a gourmandise of a researcher by drawing from the works of the Haydn brothers, Michael and Joseph. None of our authors pull the cover to him, all three being concentrated to serve with their best and with all their art the divine service! A few minutes of happiness thanks to a bishop in a hurry, it's paradise, right?"
