Accentus Music has just recorded Anton Bruckner’s Missa solemnis as well as other sacred works written by the composer. These pieces were originally played during the inauguration ceremony of the provost Friedrich Mayr in St. Florian, Austria in 1854. The actual concert, which took place in the Konzerthaus Berlin, was performed by the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and the RIAS Kammerchor and was conducted by Lukasz Borowicz. The soloists were Johanna Winkel (soprano), Sophie Harmsen (alto), Sebastian Kohlhepp (tenor) and Ludwig Mittelhammer (bass). The album with the new recording will be released towards the end of the year.
