“From the heart: may it reach the heart.” This was Beethoven’s inscription at the start of his towering mass, Missa Solemnis. For its composer, it was a labor of love he considered one of his supreme achievements, working painstakingly over four years, pouring his own profound spirituality into the score, and concluding with an impassioned appeal for peace. One of the most technically demanding works in the repertoire, it pushes the limits for both orchestra and vocalists. Simply put, experiencing it live is a once-in-a-lifetime, truly unforgettable experience.
