  • Valley Presbyterian Church, Green Valley (map)

It is almost impossible to overstate the impact Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart had on the world. For musicians and non-musicians alike, hearing his name conjures up images of genius and an artistic miracle.

Commonly known as the “Solemn Vespers,” Mozart’s Vesperae solennes de confessore stands among his finest operas and choral masterpieces, prefiguring his great Mass in C Minor and Requiem. You will not want to miss the transcendent Laudate Dominum.

2019 marks the 500th anniversary of the Leonardo da Vinci’s death, and celebrates the immeasurable contribution the artist and inventor made on the entire world. Inspired by words, drawings and subjects in da Vinci’s personal notebooks, rising star and American composer Jocelyn Hagen explores the mind and world of da Vinci. In an Arizona premiere, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci includes a video projection over the choir and orchestra showing the actual drawings of one of the greatest minds of all time.

True Concord: Beethoven & Goethe

  • Valley Presbyterian Church, Green Valley (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This year the world celebrates the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth — a sign of how much impact he has had on humanity. Another sign is the fact that one work, composed in 1824, is still used today across the globe as a rallying message of unity — a call to be our best selves. That work is the incomparable Ninth Symphony, and the Choral Fantasy is often considered its forerunner.

At its premiere, Beethoven himself played the piano part and the opening solo gives us an inside look at his creative improvisational style. Jeffrey Biegel will take on that role, coming off his debut with True Concord this past November with Jake Runestad’s Dreams of the Fallen.

Beethoven was at a high point of his creative genius at the time he wrote the Mass in C Major, the ambitious forerunner to Missa Solemnis.

Johannes Brahms’s Alto Rhapsody, Op. 53 for contralto, male chorus and orchestra, was written as a wedding gift and unrequited love letter for Robert and Clara Schumann’s daughter, Julie.

Brahms used verses from Harzreise im Winter, a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe inspired by the writer’s ascent of the Harz mountains. Goethe was a novelist, playwright, natural philosopher, scientist, artist and diplomat whose great drama, Faust, is considered to be a near-perfect commentary on the condition of modern man.

Goethe reached the summit, in deep snow, with the landscape below him shrouded in clouds. The gorgeous Alto Rhapsody teems with passion and angst, all highlighted by alto soloist Emily Marvosh.

True Concord: Shakespeare in Song

Step into the world of arguably the greatest genius of the English language. Music is a language, and language can be music, so it is only fitting that William Shakespeare uses and refers to well over one hundred songs in his works.

The cornerstone of the concert is English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music featuring 16 vocal soloists. Heartfelt melodies swell and ebb like a gentle breeze of sound with text from William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice. It is said that Sergei Rachmaninoff, in attendance at the premiere of the Serenade, was reduced to tears by its beauty.

This concert premieres the third annual Stephen Paulus Emerging Composers Competition winner, with text from Shakespeare’s Sonnet No. 8, the inspiration for True Concord’s name.

In its first two years this competition has received more than 70 entries from across the country and has resulted in the world premieres of two works.
