Album in used condition.Beethoven regarded the Missa solemnis as his crowning achievement, a personal expression on the brotherhood of mankind and the fragility of peace. It remains an Everest in the choral repertory, demanding both passion and intensity from its singers, while also containing some of Beethoven's most sublime music, not least its opening Kyrie. This well-recorded Missa Solemnis gives us a chance to hear the CSO and its famed chorus in full cry. I wouldn't rank Barenboim's conducting with the great ones -- or even the nearly great -- because he's trying to channel the ghost of Furtwangler, indulging in irritating, arbitrary slow downs and speed ups. On the plus side, he has a good group of soloists, none of them big names except for Waltraud Meier, and two huge assets in the orchestra and chorus. In the late Eighties into the Nineties Barenboim tackled several of the big bow-wow choral masterpieces, and this is probably his most successful effort, along with an equally satisfying Verdi Requiem.
