About This Performance

One of the greatest of all Mass settings, the Missa Solemnis is an atypical work, even for Beethoven. Missing is the sustained development of themes that is one of his hallmarks. Also absent is his penchant for theme and variations. Instead, the Missa presents a continuous musical narrative, almost without repetition.
