About the Concert
There is much that is unusual about Schubert's Mass in A flat major. He worked on it for a whole three years, which is unusually long for Schubert. There was also no commissioner, as was usually the case at the time. And finally, the key is astonishing: A-flat major hovers between tragedy and melancholy on the one hand and radiant festivity on the other. The music has something of all this, and perhaps that is why this mass is so popular.
The Dresdner Kreuzchor thus returns to the Dresden Kulturpalast and continues the great tradition of joint concerts with the Dresden Philharmonic.
