Beethoven Festival Symphony No. 9

Synopsis

In his Ninth Symphony, Beethoven models the ultimate courage of an artist, transcending his profound deafness and all preconceptions about the limits of a symphony. Every measure of vulnerability and power builds to the most uplifting arrival in the history of music, when the Seattle Symphony Chorale rises to proclaim the rousing “Ode to Joy.”
