Beethoven 9

Uploaded by yuhaszk
“Shocking! A chorus and soloists in a finale? It’s just never done!” Ah, but Ludwig van Beethoven was a revolutionary. He didn’t let that stop him from composing what may be the most glorious – and most downloaded and Spotified – piece of music ever written. Symphony No. 9 speaks to our higher ideas and a message of joy, sung by a finely matched quartet of soloists who you’ll long remember. It’s a perfect pairing with Shostakovich’s homage to Beethoven. Without chorus or soloists, Shostakovich fills his work with hidden messages that intrigue listeners even today.
