With its expanded brass section, thundering organ chords, glorious melodies and lyrical intermezzos, Leoš Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass is a highlight of the symphonic chorus repertoire. In the hands of Janáček specialist and chief conductor Jan Latham-Koenig, this cooperation with the celebrated 80-strong Prague Philharmonic Choir promises to be an exceptionally festive season opener.
