MozartSymphony No. 41 in C major, “Jupiter”
MozartMass in C minor, “Great”

It’s all about Amadeus this February evening, as the HSO and the Huntsville Community Chorus present two of Mozart’s most breathtaking masterworks. A church service in Salzburg saw the premiere of the C Minor Mass through which the young maestro introduced his wife Constanze, a fine soprano, to the hometown crowd. Though the piece remained unfinished, it has nonetheless earned the epithet “Great” as a lasting cornerstone of the sacred repertoire. It’s one of the few pieces robust enough to follow the “Jupiter” Symphony No. 41 – Mozart’s final contribution to the genre, renowned for its Jovian scale, boundless energy, and grand finale.
