Beethoven: Missa solemnis – Helen Donath, Doris Soffel, Siegfried Jerusalem,

Hans Sotin, Edinburgh Festival Chorus, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Georg Solti

From 1819 to 1823, Beethoven was stirred by a renewed creative energy. Over these four years he sketched his Missa solemnis, the work which he himself came to admire above all others. Here the composer of utter conviction seems to surpass himself with a musical glimpse of the heavenly. This captivating performance, by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under its then Principal Conductor, Sir Georg Solti, was recorded live at the BBC Proms in 1982.



                           **** - Excellent

Carlo Vitali - Musica magazine (Italy) - December 2014 - January 2015

 


 "Where Beethoven’s Misa solemnis is concerned, only the big beasts of the musical jungle need apply. Georg Solti was one such beast. His command, both of the work and of the forces he has at his disposal here, makes for a vivid account of the Mass. The Edinburgh Festical Chorus ... is in particularly fine fettle. For so large a chorus, the word-pointing is superb. As for the soloists, you need only read their names to recognise the quality of the line-up. The contributions of the oung Siegfried Jerusalem are particularly noteworthy..."

Richard Osborne - Gramophone magazine - September 2014
