Libby Burgess speaker
Mozart’s Mass in C minor is one of the great unfinished pieces. Given the pressures he was under at the time perhaps this is not surprising – a famous public figure in celebrity-conscious Vienna with pressing domestic demands and constant financial insecurity. Libby Burgess’ lecture will explore these and other fascinating aspects of Mozart’s life and how they shaped his music.
A small display kindly organised by the Minster Library relating to Mozart and his
times will be on show in the Chapter House passage throughout the Festival.
