Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique
ConductorJohn Eliot Gardiner
This album was recorded live at the Barbican in 2012. Sir John Eliot Gardiner offers a daring reading of this piece. The Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique’s performance on period instruments is virtuosic and colourful; the Monteverdi Choir contributes arresting chorus parts.
Composed "from the heart", Beethoven’s epic Mass has been described as a statement of highly personal religious faith. It is rarely heard in concert due to the large forces required and the exacting demand it places on all performers.
The album is packaged in a digipack and contains a 36 pages booklet with original notes by BBC presenter and music journalist Stephen Johnson.
