Mozart: “Great” Mass in C Minor
Wachner: ‘Come, My Dark-Eyed One’
(Washington Premiere)

The Washington Chorus opens its 51st season with the Washington premiere of a major new work by Music Director Julian Wachner, an acclaimed composer with over 100 published works. ‘Come, My Dark-Eyed One’ combines passionate and dramatic music with poetry by Sarah Teasdale, e.e. cummings, John Clare, Emily Dickinson, Alfred Tennyson and famed Turkik poet Ali-Shir Nava’i whose poem forms the core and title of the work. It speaks of two lovers’ lives and how that great love transcends death itself.

This major work for chorus, soloists and orchestra is paired with one of Mozart’s most profound and majestic works, the Great Mass in C Minor, which stands with his famous Requiem as two of the crowning achievements in the choral repertoire.
