Beethoven:

Missa Solemnis in D major, Op. 123

Saal 1, Funkhaus, Cologne, 15 June 1973


Heather Harper (soprano), Julia Hamari (alto), Sven Olof Eliasson (tenor), Peter Meven (bass), Wolfgang Marschner (violin)

Kölner Rundfunkchor & Sinfonie-Orchester, William Steinberg

William Steinberg (1899–1978), a native of Cologne who spent almost all his career in the U.S., was known principally as Music Director of the Pittsburg Symphony (1952–76), which he made into one of the world’s leading orchestras, and also as the distinguished Music Director of the Boston Symphony (1969–72) at the end of his career.

He was celebrated as an orchestra builder, co-founding the Palestine Orchestra which became the Israel Philharmonic as well as helping one of his mentors, Arturo Toscanini, to form the NBC Symphony Orchestra. His other mentor was Otto Klemperer and, like Klemperer, Steinberg conducted and recorded Beethoven, Brahms, Bruckner and Mahler superbly together with a fondness for 20th-century works. Steinberg’s recording of Beethoven’s Missa solemnis has never been issued before on CD and is in excellent stereo.

“In Steinberg's Gloria, the choir's accent on 'hominibus' is just right: quiet, not overdone...Steinberg hammers out 'consubstantialem Patri' in fine style...Peter Meven intones the the opening to the Agnus Dei with gravitas.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2012

“Steinberg impresses by keeping a firm hand on the tiller. Almost without exception I thought his tempi were judiciously chosen...Beethoven makes the most unreasonable demands on the chorus, the sopranos especially, yet the German singers never flinch and I admired the tenors who produce strong, incisive singing yet never force the tone” MusicWeb International, July 2012

“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.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2011 *****

“The orchestra is beautifully balanced internally, with splendid trombones when they enter in the Credo...The big choir, too, sings gloriously over a wide dynamic range. Climaxes are overwhelming but with Christian Thielemann always creating supple phrasing and expressive use of light and shade...Video director Michael Beyer covers the performance most effectively and above all lets us watch the faces of the dedicated performers” Gramophone Magazine, July 2011
