A special concert appeared in the Salzburg Cathedral in the old-fashioned way: by poster, with tickets at the door.  The Salzburg Cathedral Choir and Orchestra, with guests, performed Mozart’s Mass in c-minor in the Salzburg Cathedral.  And while they have a website and normally publicize, this concert remained a mystery – I had only seen posters two weeks ago at the Cathedral entrance.

The acoustics in that building do cause the sounds to blur, making a fair appraisal more difficult.  Nevertheless, the words came out with clear enunciation and the instruments emerged individually as well, so despite the blurry lines these musicians, who provide the music every week for High Mass and are used to the building and its acoustics, understood the idiom and the setting.  János Czifra conducted.
