Non plus ultra recording of the Solemnis!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beethoven: Missa Solemnis [John Eliot Gardiner, Monteverdi Choir] [SDG: SDG718] (Audio CD)
John Eliot Gardiner never ceases to amaze. Though some of his recent recordings have critically up speed tempo's and border on virtuoso music making instead of a more modest approach to the scores, this recording has it all: monumental, breathtaking, inspiring, touching: both his first recording and this new one of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis are absolutely without match: fantastic!
