CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Beethoven’s Missa solemnis
Saturday, April 4, 2020 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Robert Spano by J.D. Scott
Its unprecedented grandeur of sound and emotional intensity lifts Beethoven’s Missa solemnis beyond the confines of the liturgy for which it was written. Resembling a five-movement symphony with voices, it casts a dramatic spell in its opening measures, uplifts with the thrilling Gloria, ascends to the sublime with the ethereal violin solo in the Benedictus, and embraces both the almighty and humanity in the culminating prayer for peace.
