Puccini’s Requiem Although very short was extremely poignant and we were accompanied by Ben Kearsley on the Viola, as well as Michał Gajzler on piano.
Petite Messe Solennelle is considered by the composer as one of his Péchés de vieillesse ("Sins of Old Age"), which unites a number of songs, and instrumental works written after his retiring from operatic writing. The Mass was originally composed for 12 voices with piano and harmonium accompaniment. The Farlkirk Festival Chorus was proud to present this initial version of Rossini’s. It is with great pleasure that we welcomed back our founder and Musical Director Robert Tait, who played the harmonium part, in a duet with our actual pianist Michał Gajzler. It was an exciting performance not to be missed. Soloists: Dana Tanase – Soprano; Lynn Bellamy – Mezzo-soprano; Sanggyoul Lee – Tenor; Lancelot Nomura – Bass;Piano: Michał Gajzler; Harmonium: Robert Tait; Conductor: Razvan Luculescu
