Beethoven - Missa solemnis
Lucy Crowe, soprano
Allan Clayton, tenor
Roderick Williams, baritone
‘From the heart – May it return – To the heart!’ The spidery handwriting that spells out the dedication on Beethoven’s score to the Missa solemnis is every bit as impassioned as the music that follows. Five years in the making, this was one of the last major works Beethoven completed before his death, and ‘major’ is absolutely the right word for this towering tour de force. Conductor Mark Wigglesworth is joined by an all-star quartet of soloists and the Hallé Choir to raise the Bridgewater Hall roof for the orchestra’s final concert of the season.
