First time Missa Solemnis has been released on Blu-ray!
Features a cast of excellent soloists: Elīna Garanča, Krassimira Stoyanova, Michael Schade & Franz-Josef Selig
Performed on 13th & 14th February 2010 at the traditional memorial concert to commemorate the bombardment of Dresden during the last weeks of World War II.
“Thielemann generally favours lively tempos and a lightness of touch. Details are clear and he elicits a remarkable luminosity from the substantial forces, making this a deeply engaging account...The chorus is impressive and the soloists well matched...Blu-ray brings the expected crispness of picture, and the sound is wonderfully natural.”
