Mendelssohn and Mozart

Bristol Choral Society & Bristol Ensemble

Mendelssohn’s iconic dove takes wing alongside the most imposing of all Mozart’s Masses – tragically incomplete like the Requiem whose intensity it rivals. Between them, poised and impassioned, comes an evergreen concerto returning one of Bristol’s own to the Colston Hall stage.
