A concert last week in aid of Concordia given by the Collegium Musicum Costa del Sol with the Camerata singers in the Iglesia de la Encarnación Marbella, focused on works from the latter half of the 18th century when Vienna became the creative hub of much of the innovative development to music composition that we recognise today. Joseph Haydn and Amadeus Mozart were two leading lights in this evolution, but it is to the latter's father, Leopold Mozart, that we turned for the opening piece of this event. The second movement from his Trumpet Concerto featured soloist Ángel San Bartolomé whose rendition was received with much approval from the full house.
Antonio Salieri's requiem followed with a faultless and beautiful performance by orchestra, choir and the four soloists, Louise Wayman, Natalie Sinnott, Alberto Sousa and Ryan Hugh Ross.
The finale was Te Deum (sacred hymn) by Michael Haydn. The orchestra was conducted by Annemarie Philips, with arrangements by Delyth Bressington.
