Beethoven Missa Solemnis featuring the Colorado Symphony Chorus

Description

Join your Colorado Symphony for the launch of a yearlong 2020 celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday with one of the cardinal achievements of his venerated career. Featuring the Colorado Symphony Chorus and four vocal soloists, the monumental Missa Solemnis is a masterpiece of spiritual expression and musical innovation. Composed around the time of his Ninth Symphony, the two works shed light on Beethoven’s religious world view — where the Ninth’s ‘Ode to Joy’ is a hymn to man and brotherhood, the Missa Solemnis is a hymn to God. Through it all, Beethoven expresses universal spiritual ideas in a manner that could not have been accomplished by words alone, concluding with a fraught yet unanswered plea for peace amid the drumbeats of war. You won’t want to miss this once-in-a-generation performance as conducted by Music Director Brett Mitchell.

This performance will not have an intermission.
