Philippe Herreweghe - Beethoven - Missa Solemnis - Nat'l Philharmonic Concert Hall, Warsaw, 22 08 2010

One year beafore the Brahms, Herreweghe played an even grander piece by Beethoven, that time at Warsaw's venerable National Philharmonic.

All this was done as part of the 2010 Chopin and His Europe Festival celebrating that composer's 200th birthday. There will be more performances on this blog from this period, as there was much interesting stuff going on then.

The live broadcast was irritatingly clicky that night. I tried to remove as many of the most annoying glitches as I could, but some inevitably remain.

The cast:
Orchestre des Champs-Élysées
Collegium Vocale Gent & Accademia Chigiana Siena
Philippe Herreweghe

Simone Schneider – soprano
Gerhild Romberger – alto
Emiliano Gonzalez Toro – tenor
Reinhard Hagen – bass
