The Greatest Piece Never Heard - Why Beethoven's Missa Solemnis Is A Hidden Gem

Beethoven's masterpiece of spiritual expression comes to Boettcher Concert Hall February 21-23, 2020 with the Colorado Symphony and Chorus

Among the many celebrated works of Ludwig van Beethoven, the Missa Solemnis is perhaps his most mysterious. The composer himself regarded it as his greatest composition, a culmination of his life-long desire to join music and philosophy, while the French composer, theorist, and teacher Vincent d’Indy wrote, “We stand in the presence of one of the greatest masterworks in the realm of music.” This is a true companion piece to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony that sheds light on Beethoven's spiritual worldview.
