The 27th season of the Los Angeles Master Chorale opens tonight with Beethoven's Missa Solemnis. A challenging monument to hope and transcendence, shot through with fears and intimations of war, Beethoven's Mass will be sung tonight in a world on the brink of battle--and by a chorus at a crossroads. The season will be John Currie's last as music director.

A Master for the Chorale? William Hall, Simon Halsey, Paul Salamunovich and Thomas Somerville will each rehearse the Los Angeles Master Chorale next month in an audition for the post of music director, which John Currie leaves vacant at the end of this season. Somerville, professor of music at Occidental College, is a new name in the search launched a year ago, when Currie announced he would not seek renewal of his contract.

Midway through its run of "The Merry Widow" at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, it gave the local premiere of Schoenberg's opera, "Moses and Aron," in a concert performance by the German Symphony Orchestra and Radio Chorus, both of Berlin, conducted by Kent Nagano.

The search took over a year, and brought up names from across the United States and Europe. But in the end, the Los Angeles Master Chorale turned to its roots for a new music director, naming Paul Salamunovich to the post. "I'm sort of like the prodigal son, come back," Salamunovich said Thursday just before a press conference at the Music Center where he was publicly introduced. "My choral heritage is this group."
