 Mass in C - Beethoven  &  Nelson Mass - Haydn
Saturday, 14 January 2017, 7:30 pm

These two great masterpieces were written within ten years of each other, when Beethoven was in his thirties and Haydn was in his sixties.
Both were composed specially to celebrate the birthday of the wife of Prince Nikolaus Esterhazy II.

There are many great moments in these two special mass settings.
The beauty of the music in the Kyrie and Benedictus in Beethoven’s Mass in C is immediately appealing.
The exciting music in the Kyrie plus the thrilling crescendo at the end of the Benedictus are just two of the memorable sections of Haydn’s Nelson Mass. To hear these two major works in one evening will be a real treat.

St John Passion - J S Bach
Saturday, 18 March
2017, 7:30 pm

A unique Bach Masterpiece

Johann Sebastian Bach’s St. John Passion is certainly his greatest dramatic masterpiece.  Especially magnificent are the opening and closing Choruses – the first immediately establishes a scene of power and drama and the final chorus is one of the composer’s most glorious pieces, richly scored and most beautifully melodious.  Between these two great Choruses there is a continuously strong dramatic musical sequence, only changed in mood  by some famous Chorales and a selection of some of the finest of Bach’s Arias – especially the intensely memorable Alto Aria ‘It is fulfilled’. Every performance of Bach’s St. John Passion provides a unique musical experience and is sure to be a special occasion at Eton on March 18th
