Symphony Hall, Birmingham


Jeffrey Skidmore conductor

Andrew Tortise tenor
Roderick Williams bass


Beethoven devoted four years to his monumental Missa Solemnis. Passionate, humble, majestic and intense, nothing he composed surpasses it for scale, sincerity or sheer vision. How wonderful, in our 50th year to join forces with the CBSO as they celebrate their Centenary, and an outstanding team of soloists to mark Beethoven’s 250th birthday and realise his wish – written on the first page of the score – that this music should come ‘from the heart that it may go to the heart’.


This concert will end at approximately 5.45pm.
