“Muti’s pacing is flawless . . . the solo quartet and choir poised, the orchestral layer a benediction. Even the hardened non-believer will mutter a graceful ‘Amen!’.” — BBC Music Magazine

An under-recorded and under-performed corner of the repertoire — the music of Luigi Cherubini. Italian conductor Riccardo Muti has a soft spot for the composer of his homeland, conducting and recording many of his major works for EMI Classics. Here, experience the sublime Missa solemnis in E Major, with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus alongside two of Cherubini’s motets.
