Beethoven’s Ninth

Event at National Arts Centre - Southam Hall

Tagged in: Concerts

A hymn to our common humanity in times of war and ethnic strife, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy remains as relevant today as the day it was first performed. After struggling for years to compose his masterpiece, Beethoven never heard it — he was completely deaf by the time it premiered in 1824. Now, nearly two centuries later, the hope expressed in the chorus still resonates: that joy shall bind us together, though customs tear us apart. In an uncertain world, feel the uplifting power of Beethoven’s immortal Ninth Symphony.
