Fire & Passion

Burning for a cause - that is also the motto of Wiener Singakademie and Pro Brass under the direction of Heinz Ferlesch on May 1st. But unlike various traditional May Day rallies, which have already more or less run out of fire, here a collective of singers and musicians glows with musical passion. Pro Brass combines the highest brass art with new arrangements of Handel's "Fireworks Music" and the Coronation Anthem "Zadok the priest". (The latter, by the way, should also ring in the ears of passionate soccer fans). In addition, there is the third movement from Werner Pirchner's "Firewater Music" and the two-choir "Miserere" by Gregorio Allegri; the legendary work that was intoned annually during Holy Week in the Sistine Chapel from the 1630s until 1870 and whose copying ban the 14-year-old Mozart elegantly circumvented by writing it down from memory after hearing it once.
