LPO Beethoven's Missa Solemnis

LPO Beethoven's Missa Solemnis


Recorded live at London's Royal Albert Hall on 10 September 1982. The recording features an outstanding array of soloists representing some of the finest voices of the late 20th century: Helen Donath, Doris Soffel, Siegfried Jerusalem and Hans Sotin, as well as the Edinburgh Festival Chorus.

This concert was one of the highlights of Solti's final season as LPO Principal Conductor: a memorable performance described by mezzo soprano Doris Soffel upon hearing the master as the conductor's 'love-declaration to Beethoven'. The Missa Solemnis is one of Beethoven's great works from the height of his composing career: nothing he composed surpasses it for scale, sincerity or sheer vision.
