Beethoven: Symphony No. 9Karina Canellakis - Vienna
Beethoven’s ninth symphony performed in Vienna, the city where Beethoven lived and worked, by the Vienna Symphony Orchestra conducted by the American Karina Canellakis. An exceptional work in many respects but above all for the introduction of the human voice in the last movement, allowing the setting of Schiller’s Ode to Joy to music. A manifesto for the brotherhood of man, the Ninth has become a strong symbol for European culture and universal values. Camilla Nylund, Patricia Nolz, Piotr Beczala and Ryan Speedo Green are soloists in the final movement.
