René Jacobs Musical Direction

Conductor René Jacobs describes the Missa Solemnis in D major as brilliant and humble at the same time. Ludwig van Beethoven invested four years of meticulous research into music history and theology into the piece and finally freed the liturgical text from its strict conventions creating a rather personal musical interpretation. The RIAS Chamber Choir, four soloists and the Freiburger Barock Orchestra under the direction of René Jacobs will fill the Friedenskirche with the »most sincere Mass setting«, according to Jacobs. And will let the Mass »go to the heart«, as Beethoven wished in his original dedication inscription.


The event is part of the subscription package »Beethoven hoch drei« [Three times Beethoven].
