Midday Classical: Beethoven's Mass in C

12/16/09 10:00AM By Walter Parker

We'll celebrate Beethoven's birthday with his Mass in C, Op. 86.  Overshadowed somewhat by the grand Missa Solemnis, the Mass in C is a more intimate work in which Beethoven paid particularly close attention to the text.  We also have a new recording of Beethoven's Violin Concerto from Renaud Capucon.
