Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony
Music Talk with Andy Bromberger
The Ninth Symphony is one of the greatest works in the classical repertoire, regarded as the pinnacle of Beethoven’s achievements and a culmination of his genius. Written between 1822 – 1824, it is remarkable not only for its grandness of scale but also being the first symphony from a major composer to use voices, the Ode to Joy from Friedrich Schiller.
Join Andy Bromberger as she reveals the political, social and historic implications of this ground-breaking piece of music in this special lecture.
