Runnicles does it again...

It is something of a special event when Donald Runnicles is scheduled to conduct the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. He has been its principal guest conductor since 2001 and he is arguably the highest-profile conductor to appear on the Symphony Hall podium. This weekend's program presented Beethoven's monumental Missa solemnis, composed in 1823.

But this was not the case with Maestro Runnicles: he gave us his take on the Missa, while never losing sight of Beethoven.  For the complete review, click here:
