Master Chorale of South Florida. March 31st through April 2nd, 2006It may not be possible to improve on Mozart, but it is possible to complete something he never finished. Mozart began his Mass in C minor (K. 427) on or before 1782, but for unknown reasons, never completed it. He left the scoring for certain instruments blank in several sections, and he only sketched his ideas for other sections. Musicologist and Mozart scholar Robert D. Levin picked up where Mozart left off and completed the mass in 2004. Levin added appropriate instrumentation and reconstructed entire sections from Mozart’s notes to make the Mass liturgically complete. The Master Chorale of South Florida will perform this new version, 25 minutes longer than the familiar version, with the Boca Raton Philharmonic Symphonia and soloists on March 31, April 1 and April 2, 2006. Following its U.S. debut at Carnegie Hall in January 2005, the Master Chorale performances of the new version will be among the first in the U.S – and the very first in South Florida. The Levin version has already taken Europe by storm, with its place in the classical repertoire to be secured by a performance at the Salzburg Festival on August 30, 2006. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear for the first time, a fascinating work that clearly illustrates the breadth and depth of Mozart’s talent for writing vocal and instrumental music. The Robert D. Levin version of Mozart’s Mass in C minor will be performed on Friday, March 31st, 2006, at 8:00 pm in Boca Raton at the Roberts Theatre at Andrews Hall, The Center for Performing Arts, St. Andrews School; on Saturday, April 1st, at 8:00 pm in Fort Lauderdale at Second Presbyterian Church; and on Sunday, April 2nd, at 3:00 pm in Miami at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral.
