Solomusica: The Face of Mercy
In celebration of the Papal Year of Mercy, Solomusica has organized two concerts of
Mozart’s masterpieces: First his Great Mass in C minor, followed by the seldom-performed “Misericordias Domini,” a sacred work he composed at the age of 19 that’s now considered a minor masterpiece. Featured in this performance by the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong are Francesca Lombardi Mazzulli, Roberta Mameli, and Mirco Palazzi from Italy, as well as Hong
Kong’s own tenor Attis Y Chen. Proceeds go to Save the Children and Helping Hand.
