LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN Missa solemnis in D major, Op. 123

In 2021, the Balthasar Neumann Orchestra and Choir gave a memorable performance of Mendelssohn's Elijah at the final concert of the Vocal Residency. This year they are back to perform another masterpiece of romantic spirituality under the baton of Thomas Hengelbrock: Beethoven's Missa solemnis. ‘The greatest work I have ever composed’, said the composer – the only trace of using this superlative ever found in his writings.
