Album Description

One of the greatest masterworks in the history of music, which makes considerable technical demands particularly of the soloists and the choir, Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis was regarded by the composer as the summit of his artistic achievements. It is a work of enormous proportions and extraordinary emotional and musical contrasts, alternating passages of tense drama with interludes of blissful serenity. The conflict of exuberance, anguish, faith and doubt is seemingly resolved only by the final petition of the Agnus Dei, Bitte um innern und äussern Frieden (Prayer for inner and outward peace), words that some have seen as a reflection of Beethoven’s own inner turmoil. Missa Solemnis was composed from 1819-1823, when Beethoven was completely deaf. Despite illness and the rejection of loved ones at the time of this composition. The piece is dedicated to "My God who has never deserted me." Beethoven’s profound faith can be heard in every measure of this work that the composer himself called "the greatest work which I have composed thus far." He creates here something that is both old and completely new, a spiritual apotheosis comparable to that he brought about with his last symphony.
