Joseph Haydn, Symphony No. 95 in C minor (1791)
OZNO, Cantata No. 3, “Gabriel” (World Premiere)
Anton Bruckner, Te Deum in C major (1883)
A Symphony of Praise sets in illuminating opposition two superb but rarely performed works from 18th- and 19th-century Austria by two of music’s greatest masters, and a new work by one of Hong Kong’s most respected musicians and composers. The programme is in fact a symphony in three movements — from the dark tempestuousness of Haydn Symphony No. 95 in C minor, to OZNO Cantata Nr. 3 “Gabriel”, to the brilliant jubilation of C major in Bruckner Te Deum.
A Symphony of Praise is generously supported by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
The new work, OZNO Cantata Nr. 3 “Gabriel”, is commissioned by Hong Kong Bach Choir in 2019 with sponsorship from CASH Music Fund.
