Notes & Reviews:

"Christian Thielemann conjured up the gigantic cosmos of the 'Missa' with such lightness and grace that its mystery seemed to reveal itself." - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Conductor Christian Thielemann leads the Staatskapelle Dresden and the Sächsiger Staatsopernchor Dresden in an exceptional performance of Beethoven's great mass setting. The all-star singing cast feature vocal soloists Elina Garanca, Krassimira Stoyanova, Michael Schade, and Franz-Josef Selig. This is the first video recording of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis to be commercially available on BluRay disc.
