ANTONIN DVOŘÁK: STABAT MATER
Herkulessaal

With his setting of these medieval verses the Bohemian composer created his most moving sacred work. Following the deep pain which Dvorak had to suffer with the death of his three children within 20 months, he created this stirring and emotional work of great dignity. In his mourning on losing his children, his Stabat Mater shows the Virgin Mary in her grief lamenting the crucified Christ.

With George Frederic Handel’s festive/swinging melodies, the Münchner Motettenchor welcomes the new year 2020. His brilliant „Dixit Dominus“ provides the musical fireworks for a crackling New Year’s Eve, as does the celebratory „Jubilate Domino“.

CARL LOEWE: OSTERORATORIUM
Matthäuskirche

Loewe, mainly known for his many ballads, was also very productive as a composer of oratorios. His „Sühneopfer des neuen Bundes“,which has in recent years become more popular as part of the normal repertoire in church music, is the most expressive of Loewe’s 17 oratorios and is full of dramatic vigour. The influence of Bach’s passions is especially noticeable in the choirs.

GIOACHINO ROSSINI: PETITE MESSE SOLENNELLE
Matthäuskirche

The Munich Motettenchor’s Summer Concert 2020 is marked by Rossini’s light and cheerful „Little Mass“. Written 34 years after the great composer’s last opera, he gave the work the title „Petite“ only ironically. In its dimensions, the mass is in the tradition of Beethoven’s „Missa Solemnis“. Notable is the instrumentation, with two pianos and a harmonium, giving the whole work an unusual sound and feeling.

After the concert the choir invites you to a summer reception, to celebrate the end of another successful season.
