Hallé: Collection Series - Beethoven, Missa Solemnis

Beethoven Missa Solemnis 80'

Sir Mark Elder conductor
Elizabeth Llewellyn soprano | Susan Bickley mezzo soprano
Allan Clayton tenor | Reinhard Hagen bass
Hallé Choir

Sir Mark conducts a monumental masterpiece of the choral repertoire, Beethoven’s great Missa Solemnis (Solemn Mass). Originally intended for performance in the vast gothic splendour of Cologne Cathedral, the work is a grand public statement of Beethoven’s private – and typically distinctive – theological viewpoint. 

Central to the piece is a sense of the overwhelming grandeur of the divine contrasted to the insignificance of man, a message conveyed with an astonishing visionary intensity.

The Hallé Choir and a fine line-up of soloists will be at the top of their games to meet its considerable technical challenges, as will the players of the Hallé.
