Missa Solemnis

Barbican HallSilk Street, London, Greater London, EC2Y 8DS, Vereinigtes Königreich
Am Mittwoch 4 März 2020 um 19:30

A cornerstone of the Barbican’s celebrations of 250 years since Beethoven’s birth: the composer’s musical vision of the divine is unleashed by the forces of the Orchestra, Chorus and vocal soloists.

Of all his own works, Beethoven admired one more than any other: his grand solemn mass in music, the Missa Solemnis. When the composer started to write the piece in 1819, he sensed a new energy flowing through him. Four years later, on specially enlarged sheets of paper, he had succeeded in setting down his musical vision of the divine using every means of sonic imagery available to him. Brought to life, Beethoven’s score represents his most intense and uplifting live concert experience.

Richard Farnes returns to the Orchestra for this performance with stunning soloists and the BBC Symphony Chorus, a cornerstone of the Beethoven 250 celebrations.
