Scheduled Mass in C major op.86 by Ludwig van Beethoven. Maestro Riccardo Donati will direct the Choir of the Cathedral of Pisa and the orchestra will host the Chamber Orchestra of Mantua. The Mass in C major, Op 86, was composed more than ten years before one of the masterpieces of the German composer, the Missa Solemnis, and almost always is considered as a kind of preparatory exercise, rehearsal than the "sister" more famous and honored, although of lesser proportions and with a workforce smaller. Beethoveen gave birth to his first Mass in the spring and summer of 1807, at the specific request of Prince Nikolaus Esterházy that every year was to run a mass as a gift to his wife's name day, in his castle of Eisenstadt, the border between Austria and Hungary . And it is in that gorgeous manor that the Mass in C major was performed for the first time September 13, 1807, directed by the Beethoven. The work did not have the approval of the prince and the other guests, who believed too little innovative and conform to the style of the time. The composer of Bonn fact diverged from the canons of the time, and while it continued, especially in the Gloria and the Creed to favor a canonical polyphonic writing, the other did indeed use facilities more symphonic orchestration giving way to manifest a greater freedom theme, free from the rigid forms coeval. The Chamber Orchestra of Mantua was founded in 1981 and is imposed immediately general attention to technical brilliance, assiduous pursuit of sound quality, sensitivity to stylistic problems. So much so that in 1997 the Italian music critics award the Prize "Franco Abbiati", as the best chamber ensemble, "the sense of style and methodical research on the sounds that proposes a meeting between top executive Italian instrumental tradition and classical repertoire" .
