Beethoven - Missa solemnis, Op. 123 (Live) (2017)

Regine Hangler

Beethoven’s Missa solemnis is a unique gem. A work of dramatic external power and well-nigh incredible inner strength. Full of conviction. Rich in profoundly personal visions of the faith that has remained, carved in stone, in the form of the Latin mass text for centuries. And yet also rich in moments of doubt about dogmatic religion and the formal institution of the church. In its monumentality and lengthy duration of just under 90 minutes, the Missa solemnis departs from all liturgical guidelines – despite the fact that the work was originally intended for a specific high mass; yet it was not actually performed there in the end.

“The power of this new (live!) performance under Marek Janowski is both majestic and intimate. Finding the right balance in the performance within the frameworks given by the composer is certainly no small task. (…) In summary, Janowski and his followers created a magnificent Missa Solemnis.”
