Lyrica continues to explore the magnificent choral works of Josef Rheinberger with the centerpiece of this program, the Missa Misericordias Domini, opus 192 leading up to Holy Week. Josef Gabriel Rheinberger was a native of Liechtenstein and emerged as a child prodigy by the age of five. He was only seven when he became the organist at the town church (with a special device created to allow his feet to reach the pedals), a post he held until he entered the Munich Conservatory at age twelve. As a composer, Josef Rheinberger was remarkable for his “power of invention, masterful technique, and a noble, solid style.” Compositions by Pablo Casals, Alice Parker, and Kim Andre Arnesen will complete this program.
