These beautiful works are all fragments (or based on them), yet are no less stunning as a result. American composer Christopher Theofanidis weaves his Rainbow Body from selections of the music of medieval abbess and mystic Hildegard von Bingen. Schubert’s Symphony in B minor, perhaps the most famous unfinished work of all time, has lived in the hearts of music lovers ever since its premiere in 1865. With Mozart’s C-minor Mass, Yannick continues his exploration of the great choral works. Though incomplete when Mozart died, the Mass brilliantly displays the composer’s passion, giving us what Yannick calls “some of his most profound music.” The Westminster Symphonic Choir helps bring it to glorious life.
