Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis in Sidney


Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis

14 October 2015– 17 October 2015

Experience Beethoven at his most visionary and inspirational with solo voices, a grand choir and full orchestra. Magnificent, ambitious, glorious!


Beethoven said his Missa Solemnis was ‘my greatest work’. He put his heart and soul into this music over a period of nearly four years – well and truly missing his deadline along the way – and the result is magnificent, ambitious and gloriously inspiring.

Beethoven wrote on the finished manuscript: “From the heart – may it return to the heart.” And our chief conductor David Robertson offers these concerts as a musical gift from the heart to Sydney audiences, bringing together the full forces of Sydney Philharmonia Choirs and an impressive line-up of soloists for Beethoven’s life-affirming and visionary creation.
