Musica Angelica tries Hadyn, Mozart, Bautista Sancho

`
Hadyn's wife used music to line pastry pans, I once learned in a poem. Maestro Martin Haselböck conducts some of the stuff that didn't end up in the strudel dish, as well as orchestral works by Mozart and Juan Bautista Sancho at Herbert Zipper Concert Hall at the Colburn School, 200 S. Grand Ave. Saturday at 8 p.m.

The Musica Angelica program of sacred music includes Haydn’s Organ Concerto for Violin, Organ and Strings in F Major and Salve Regina, Mozart’s Church Sonatas, and his rarely-performed, early dialog with an angel, Grabmusik.

Also, the ensemble will feature Spanish composer and missionary Juan Bautista Sancho, who wrote a mass for angels ("los Angeles" as it happens) as a California colonial. Musica Angelica will play the Kyrie and Gloria from Missa de los Angeles. It's a fabulous program and a chance to hear some very rarely performed works, including one of the first European classical pieces written in California.

Tickets range from $39-$55, and student ID gets you in for $15. The program also plays
May 17, at 4 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Santa Monica. Baroque guitar specialist and local prof Craig Russell (photo) will not only perform but also give a pre-concert talk, so arrive early enough to enjoy it.
