BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, “The Choral”
From Chile to Tiananmen Square to Bernstein’s famous performance in Berlin following the fall of the Berlin Wall, Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” is both a protest anthem and a celebration of the human spirit. In a concert for the ages, Kahane conducts LACO’s first-ever performance of Beethoven’s inspiring “Choral” Symphony with the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
