13 - 16 October 2022
 Riva del Garda     Italy

Workshop

Director:  Mr. Peter Laskowski

Lake Garda - the most mediterranean lake of all Italian Alpine lakes.
To the alert eye the lake offers a spectacle of natural brightness and colours which makes this place a unique holiday destination for all seasons. Visitors are impressed in Riva del Garda with historic buildings and ancient traces of old Roman settlements as well as by im­posing palaces and patrician villas that create a fascinating surrounding area for our Choral Workshop with Mozart’s Coronation Mass. 

The Coronation Mass in C major (KV 317) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was most pro­bably composed for the Easter service of 1779 at the Salzburg Cathedral. Immediately after his death this church composition, which was probably Mozart’s most popular, became the preferred mass setting for services at imperial and royal coronations as well as at thanksgi­ving services. The festive symphonic elements and the clear separation of solo and choir voices are typical of this mass. Through its musical expressiveness it surpasses all other Salzburg masses.

Conditions of participation:

  • groups of at least 10 persons
  • own choral scores (published by Breitkopf & Härtel) of Coronation Mass (W. A. Mozart)
