Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber died just over three centuries ago, in 1704. Like Mozart, he became closely associated with musical life in Salzburg through appointments for that city's prince archbishop. Best known today for his Mystery Sonatas for the violin, Biber also composed the largest-scale, most advanced and difficult sacred choral music of its era. The concert will feature his Requiem in F Minor and Mass in B Flat Major, along with instrumental music.
