Beethoven Missa solemnis

Beethoven’s mighty setting of the Mass is one of the grandest and greatest choral works ever composed, taking listeners on a profound spiritual journey through turbulent doubt to ultimate redemption.

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s Principal Conductor Robin Ticciati has been widely praised for his incisive, passionate performances with the exceptional players of the Edinburgh ensemble, mixing thrilling detail with surging power. Joined by the compelling voices of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, he directs an outstanding line-up of international vocal soloists in one of Beethoven’s most magnificent achievements.
