Beethoven’s sublime choral masterpiece speaks of the joys and suffering of faith. Historically deemed too big for the church, Beethoven’s setting of the Catholic mass evokes the immensity, power, and pathos of humanity’s search for redemption. The Swedish Chamber Orchestra, under renowned Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard, accompanies a stellar cast of Scandinavian vocalists along with the impeccable Swedish Radio Choir.


This performance is also part of Great Performers.
