About the album

Recorded live at the BBC Proms in 1982, this concert was one of the highlights of Solti’s final
season as LPO Principal Conductor: a memorable performance described by mezzo soprano
Doris Soffel upon hearing the master as the conductor’s ‘love-declaration to Beethoven’.

Solti, an exclusive Decca artist, was one of the most influential and most recorded conductors
of the 20th century. It was with his recordings of Beethoven with the LPO in the early 1950s
that his career first gathered momentum.

Solti had a great affinity with the Missa Solemnis on the concert stage and in recordings. He
recorded it twice, once with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (1978) and later a live recording
with the Berlin Philharmonic (1994), both only currently available digitally or as part of a 25CD
(Berlin) or 54CD (Chicago) box set.

The recording features an outstanding array of soloists representing some of the finest voices
of the late 20th century: Helen Donath (particularly fantastic in the opening Kyrie), Doris Soffel,
Siegfried Jerusalem and Hans Sotin, as well as the Edinburgh Festival Chorus.
