Yorkshire Bach Choir: Joseph Haydn & Michael Haydn

Saturday 12 March 7:30pm

Adults £20.00 | Concessions £18.00

JOSEPH HAYDN – STABAT MATER
MICHAEL HAYDN – REQUIEM
Yorkshire Baroque Soloists

Joseph Haydn's Stabat Mater is one his most expressive compositions and, as with the Michael Haydn Requiem, this is its first YBC performance. Stabat Mater enjoyed immediate success and became Haydn's most well-known sacred work. Joseph asked that his younger brother's Requiem be performed at his funeral and it is clear that the piece, written in 1771, also influenced Mozart's own Requiem. Both pieces have unusual and telling scorings, the Stabat Mater calling for a pair of cor anglais whilst the Requiem requires four trumpets.
