“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

Orchester und Kammerchor der Klangverwaltung, Enoch zu Guttenberg

Enoch zu Guttenberg’s Missa Solemnis gets the listener’s attention. “Art has to convey something,” says the conductor, “The listener has to understand what the piece is saying”. Guttenberg knows how to interpret the multiple ideas of Beethoven, the numerous musical pictures, in a striking way. Human humility and divine dignity are vividly set against each other. Enoch zu Guttenberg interprets the dramatic parts of the mass with vigour, the intimate passages prayerfully. The credo is a very distinctive example of this. The verse depicting Christ’s entombment is accompanied by melancholic funeral music, which turns into explosive songs of jubilation the next moment as the theme turns to resurrection. Ludwig van Beethoven signed his work with the motto “From the heart – it shall again touch hearts“. Enoch zu Guttenberg has taken this motto and made it the benchmark for his interpretation.
