One Ticket to Symphony or Dance Performance at Ravinia Festival Pavilion in Highland Park. Limit 8.
First performed in 1824, Missa Solemnis is often viewed as Beethoven’s response to J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor, a work Beethoven in fact never heard, but of which he was intensely aware. Composed at the same time as the Ninth Symphony, it shares the symphony’s position at the peak of Beethoven’s compositional powers—his mastery allowed him to strive for expression beyond anything heard prior to it. This is powerful, transcendentally beautiful music for orchestra, chorus and soloists. Chicago Chorale returns to Symphony Center for this work, collaborating with Symphony of Oak Park and River Forest.
