Ludwig van Beethoven
MISSA SOLEMNIS D MAJOR OP. 123
Ludwig van Beethoven’s »Missa solemnis« is one of the apexes of European music history. As part of his astonishing, artistically ambitious late oeuvre, this work has caused repeated controversy. The highest demands are placed on the vocal soloists and the choir; but the orchestra and conductor also have their work cut out in the form of sublime and uplifting art.
