There is no piece like Ludwig von Beethoven’s 9th. Its scope is cosmic and its message earth shakingly optimistic. First performed in Vienna on May 7, 1824, the symphony is regarded by many critics and musicologists as Beethoven’s greatest work and one of the supreme achievements in the history of music. WBJC radio personality, Jonathan Palevsky, joins Hopkins Symphony Orchestra Music Director, Jed Gaylin, as as we watch video of the all-encompassing finale, pausing to discuss musical techniques and text in this still every surprising miracle of music. This program will be presented on Zoom. A Zoom link will be provided to registrants in advance of the program.
