Monteverdi Choir

Mendelssohn Lobgesang with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra

Symphony No. 2 in B-Flat Major, Op. 52, "Lobgesang"

Psalm 42, Wie der Hirsch Schreit. Op. 42

 

The Monteverdi Choir will be performing Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang alongside the composer’s former ensemble, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.

Mendelssohn describes Psalm 42 as his “very best sacred composition”, an enthusiastic response from a composer who was usually such a severe self-critic. Composed during his time in Leipzig, Mendelssohn’s Second Symphony “Lobgesang” takes the hybrid form of a Symphony-Cantata, blending secular and sacred styles with this stirring work that takes the audience on a spiritual journey to enlightenment.
