Presentation

INFO COVID-19: Due to the French government decisions, Château de Versailles Spectacles has to cancel this show.

I truly made this promise in my heart,” wrote Mozart when he composed his Great Mass in C minor, as his dear Constanze was ill, addressing to God an ardent prayer of love.

Raphaël Pichon explores Mozart’s spiritual emotion, which he is intimate with, and completes Mozart Great Mass with Schubert and Bruckner motets, for a sumptuous celebration of Viennese sacred music. With Schubert, the religious dimension becomes almost popular with the catholic celebration sung in German, while Bruckner expresses grandiose spirituality, with refined and rustic aspects at the same time. The ensemble forms an Imaginary Mass of breathtaking beauty interpreted by the virtuoso Pygmalion choir. The ultimate Mozartian, Sabine Devieilhe finds extraordinary arias in these scores: the promise of a vibrant interpretation with a remarkable quartet of soloists. A timeless event at the heart of the Royal Chapel.
