Music of Titans: Handel Dettingen Te Deum & Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony is happening on Sunday, June 04, 2023 at 04:00PM EDT at First Evangelical Lutheran Church with tickets starting at $5.00
Bach in Baltimore closes out its 35 th Anniversary Season with two triumphant works. Handel composedDettingen Te Deum in 1743 along with his anthem “The King Shall Rejoice” to commemorate King George II and his army’s victory at the Battle of Dettingen over the French. It is a jubilant score for chorus, trumpets, and percussion. This song of victory is paired with Mozart’s monumental Symphony No. 41 in C major or the “Jupiter” Symphony. Mozart’s masterpiece, coined for the Roman God Jupiter, opens with a thunderous clap of strings and horns that builds to a finale of fireworks of breathtaking sound. The “Jupiter” Symphony is Mozart’s longest and last symphony, and it stands not just as one of Mozart’s greatest musical achievements but as one of the most awe-inspiring compositions of Classical music.
