Beethoven Missa Solemnis 80'
Sir Mark Elder conductor
Elizabeth Llewellyn soprano | Susan Bickley mezzo soprano
Allan Clayton tenor | Reinhard Hagen bass
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.Ticket prices and booking fees
