Notes and Editorial Reviews

From 1819 to 1823, Beethoven was stirred by a renewed creative energy. Over these four years he sketched his Missa Solemnis, the work he himself came to admire above all others. Here the composer of utter conviction seems to surpass himself with a musical glimpse of the heavenly. This captivating performance, by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under its then Principal Conductor Sir Georg Solti, was recorded live at the BBC Proms in 1982.
