The Israeli director was lucky enough to rise to this occasion with a sensational choir, the Philharmonia Chorus, one of the most prestigious in Europe since the legendary Otto Klemperer, producer Walter Legge and the great Wagnerian choir master Wilhelm Pitz jointly founded it in 1957. Prepared for this occasion by its director Stefan Bevier, the other major contributor to this excellent concert, they managed to create a feeling of incessant tension, even in the quietest passages, with which Beethoven wanted to bring the maximum choral expression to his musical ideas.
