Coro e Orchestra Ghislieri: “Theatre for the Soul”
According to Giulio Prandi, Pergolesi's D major Mass is “theatre for the soul”. The conductor and his Coro e Orchestra Ghislieri are specialists in the musical treasures of Italian church music. In addition to Pergolesi’s operatic and emotional Mass, the programme includes Joseph Haydn’s “Kleine Orgelsolomesse” and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Vesperae solennes de Confessore. The soprano soloist in all three works is Marlis Petersen.
