Orchestra of St. Luke's
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
With its massive choral forces and virtuosic demands of the orchestra, the Missa solemnis is a challenging work that can only come to life in the hands of an intrepid ensemble of musicians and singers and a remarkable conductor. The Orchestra of St. Luke’s and the Oratorio Society of New York, under the direction of Sir Roger Norrington, are just the right combination of performers to convey Beethoven’s broad faith in humankind and grand plea for peace.
