The final concert celebrating Bel Canto at Caramoor features a choral gem from one of opera’s greatest composers. Rossini surprised the musical world by retiring from the theater when he was only 32 years of age; he surprised it again by emerging at more than twice that age to compose “the last mortal Sin of my Old Age,” his Petite messe solennelle (1864). Alternately jubilant and haunted, antique and modern, the mass contains some of the composer’s most beautiful and expressive music. Caramoor presents the piece in its original chamber instrumentation for two pianos and harmonium.
