Karajan conducts Beethoven’s “Missa solemnis” in Salzburg

Beethoven’s Missa solemnis is one of the most impressive sacred compositions there is, in which religious affirmation, virtuosic vocal music and a large-scale symphonic framework combine to create a powerful whole. In this live 1979 recording from Salzburg, Herbert von Karajan, who was deeply rooted in the Christian faith, realises a performance which is as emotional as it is powerful.
