Beethoven’s crowning achievement—a monumental fusion of soloists, chorus and music all set to Schiller’s magnificent “Ode to Joy.” When it premiered in 1824, conducted by Beethoven himself, he heard not a note, so profoundly deaf was he by then.

Music Director Carl St.Clair conducts this performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony in celebration of its 200th anniversary. The program opens with the radiant Lux Aeterna by Morten Lauridsen, the most frequently performed American choral composer.

Best availability at the Friday night performance.
