‘From the heart – may it go straight to the heart’. Beethoven believed that his Missa Solemnis was the greatest piece he ever composed, and he might just have been right. This is Beethoven at the absolute top of his game, throwing all his genius at the biggest questions in human existence, and the result is staggeringly beautiful. Today’s performance is a labour of love for Andrew Manze, plus four sensational solo singers and our wonderful Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir.
