Program

Felix Mendelssohn: Sinfonia No. 8
Franz Schubert: Mass in G Major
Benjamin BrittenRejoice in the Lamb

Description

Carlos Kalmar dips into some less-often performed repertoire by brilliant composers, starting with a string symphony by 13-year-old Felix Mendelssohn followed by a breathtakingly beautiful mass by Franz Schubert. Benjamin Britten's nod to the animal kingdom, Rejoice in the Lamb, wraps things up with a musical parade of critters ranging from leopards to Jeoffrey the cat.
