This disc is a reconstruction of the complete concert programme from 7th May 1824, held at Vienna’s Court Theatre, where Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 was first performed. Christoph Spering wants the listener to appreciate the work in its original and intellectual context. The concert includes the lesser-known overture Die Weihe des Hauses (The Consecration of the House) and also the Kyrie, Credo and Agnus Dei from the Missa Solemnis, here presented as ‘Drei Hymnen’ to surmount the problem of liturgical music being censored for performace in a theatre.
