Beethoven, Missa solemnis in D major, Op. 123

The concert commemorating the bombardment of Dresden in World
War II features Beethoven's mighty choral work under the direction of
Christian Thielemann. Playing with vibrancy and passion, the
Staatskapelle Dresden made a profound impression on the entire
audience. Particularly remarkable is the fabulously homogeneous solo
quartet formed of Krassimira Stoyanova, El?na Garan?a, Michael Schade
and Franz-Josef Selig. Another major vocal feat was accomplished by
the Saxon State Opera Choir, which mastered the extremely difficult
choral part with effortless proficiency.
