BBC PROMS CONCERT ROSSINI PETITE MESSE SOLENNES GREENWICH
Kathryn makes her BBC Proms debut in a concert in the stunning Old Chapel of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London.
In his ‘Little Solemn Mass’ Rossini reflected the contrast of his own witty exterior concealing religious belief. Here, joy is tinged with grief and anxiety, amid vocal writing of purity and pungency.
The BBC Singers and David Hill present the Proms premiere of what the composer called ‘the last mortal sin of my old age’.
