Performers, Cast and Crew:
Beethoven's MISSA SOLEMNIS is brought to life in this 1979 performance. This interpretation of Beethoven's work was staged at the Easter Festival in Salzburg and features the talents of acclaimed soprano Anna Tomowa-Sintow, conductor Herbert von Karajan, and the Berlin Philharmonic.
Conductor, director and artistic supervisior Herbert von Karajan leads the Berlin Philharmonic and the Vienna
Singing Society in the Missa Solemnis by Ludwig van Beethoven. This performance from a live production at the Easter Festival in Salzburg in 1979 features a superb quartet of soloists including Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Ruza Baldani, Eric Tappy, and José van Dam.
The Missa Solemnis op. 79, one of the most important masses, is scored for an orchestra and organ, together with four solo singers and chorus and has a highly dramatic, symphonic style. The Missa Solemnis was first performed in St. Petersburg in April 1824, under the musical supervision and financial support of Prince Nikolai Galitzin. The complexity of the fugues, the frequent counterpoint between the quartet
of soloists, the choir and the different sections of the orchestra, and the sheer length of the piece (over an hour and a half) make it a huge challenge to perform
