This programme pays homage to Mozart and Rameau, the featured composers in this evening’s symphony orchestra concert. Liszt’s Évocation à la Chapelle Sixtine is based on two works: Allegri’s Miserere and Mozart’s Ave Verum. Although restricted to performance by the Sistine Chapel Choir, Allegri’s Miserere was copied down from memory by fourteen-year-old Mozart following a visit to the chapel. Langlais’ Hommage à Rameau originally comprised six movements, titled to form an acrostic on Rameau’s name, two of which appear in the published version alongside Ostinato. It was completed in 1964 to mark the bicentennial of Rameau’s death.
