We certainly did not expect to hear a high-level live performance of the music we are studying here, but we did. We were able to go to a remarkbable concert in Mantua last night thanks to the mayor of Ostiglia, Mr. Umberto Mazza, who secured ticket for us and drove us there. The choir, orchestra, and solos of the cathedral of Salzburg offered a very suggestive interpretation of Luigi Gatti’s Requiem Mass and Mozart’s Coronation Mass K317. Hearing such powerful music in this incredible church–a beautiful, beautiful Renaissance music box–was one of the highlights of our stay in Italy.
