In 1819 Ludwig van Beethoven was stirred by a new creative energy. Sketched over the next four years, on specially enlarged sheets of paper, was the work Beethoven himself came to admire above all others: his grand solemn mass, the Missa solemnis.
Using every means of musical imagery available, Beethoven demonstrated his supreme mastery of the orchestral-choral model in this musical glimpse of heaven.
The BBC Philharmonic, along with the Hallé Choir and Manchester Chamber Choir, bring Beethoven’s vision to life under the orchestra’s dynamic Conductor Laureate, Gianandra Noseda, recently named Music Director Designate of Washington’s National Symphony Orchestra.
