Christian Thielemann conducts Beethoven’s Missa solemnis

Ludwig van Beethoven regarded the Missa solemnis as “the best of his sacred works”. In this complex work, magnificent praise to God is as important as the gentle humanist message. On top of this there is the driving energy that we know from Beethoven’s symphonies. The concert is conducted by Christian Thielemann, who has given impressive performances of many great choral works with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
