Haydn secular and spiritual
In 2019 the traditional Palm Sunday Concert will once again be conducted by Omer Meir Wellber, who this season assumes the post of principal guest conductor of the Saxon State Opera in Dresden. The focus is on two works by Joseph Haydn, composed when he was music director to the Esterházy family: The popular Cello Concerto in D major, interpreted by Steven Isserlis, and the »Missa in angustiis« in D minor, which owes its epithet »Nelson Mass« to Napoleon’s British adversary, Admiral Nelson.
Expected concert duration including an interval: 95 minutes
A concert introduction is given 45 minutes before the start of the performance in the opera cellar.
