Long after he had bid farewell to his successful opera career, Gioacchino Rossini wrote his Petite messe solennelle. A mass full of drama, emotion, grand gestures and intimate moments. Andrea Battistoni, who has the Italian opera repertoire in his blood, conducts the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chorus of Dutch National Opera and four young top soloists in this concert stream.
Watch the full concert below! The stream is available free of charge until Saturday 24 April.
