Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. Few musical works express man's metaphysical aspirations more powerfully than Beethoven's titanic Missa Solemnis. As Otto Klemperer wrote some years before making this recording, "It is enormously difficult to translate into reality a work which doesn't take reality into account." He had first conducted the Missa Solemnis in 1927 and it came to define the epic grandeur of his interpretative style.
