Notes & Reviews:

Conductor, director and artistic supervisor Herbert von Karajan leads the Berlin Philharmonic and the Vienna Singing Society in the 'Missa Solemnis' by Ludwig van Beethoven. This performance from a live production at the Easter Festival in Salzburg in 1979 features a superb quartet of soloists including Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Ruza Baldani, Eric Tappy, and Jose van Dam. The 'Missa Solemnis' op. 79, one of the most important masses, is scored for an orchestra and organ, together with four solo singers and chorus and has a highly dramatic, symphonic style.
