Beethoven wished that “music should come from the heart, that it may go to the heart”. Missa solemnis was a four-year labour of love and nothing else Beethoven composed surpasses it for scale, sincerity or sheer vision. Not only does he place extreme demands on his musicians, he also requires amazing ability from the SCO Chorus and a team of first-rate soloists.
PLEASE NOTE: This event takes place at the Usher Hall, Lothian Road, Edinburgh EH1 2EA.
