Anton Bruckner’s symphonic oeuvres remain rooted in the tradition of Viennese Classicism, and his “Missa Solemnis” is no exception. This recording celebrates and commemorates the inauguration ceremony for which it was written, of collegiate provost Friedrich Mayr in St. Florian, Austria back in September 1854.

Recently edited and newly published, Bruckner’s solemn mass is interspersed with the original elements by Robert Führer, Joseph Eybler, and Johann Baptist Gänsbacher. It has now been given new life by the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin – pioneers in historical performance – and the RIAS Kammerchor, led by maestro Łukasz Borowicz, one of the most versatile conductors of his generation. Outstanding soloists featured on this recording include Johanna Winkel (soprano), Sophie Harmsen (mezzo-soprano), Sebastian Kohlhepp (tenor), and Ludwig Mittelhammer (baritone) whose innate talents have helped achieve a string of accolades and performances over the past years.

This is Accentus Music’s third release with the RIAS Kammerchor and the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, following the highly acclaimed recordings of Mendelssohn’s “Elias” and Johann Sebastian Bach’s Solo Cantatas for Bass with renowned soloist Michael Volle.
