Hamburg Symphony Orchestra - Beethoven's 9th Symphony: Abu Dhabi Classics
To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven, Abu Dhabi Classics will host one of the most famous piece of classical music ever written - the 9th Symphony, by more than 100 musicians and 70 singers.
Composed between the year 1821 and 1824, the year it premiered, the 9th Symphony was Beethoven’s last symphony and marked a turning point in musical history, as the culmination of the Vienna Classical Period and the beginning of the 19th century 'Romantic' period.
The words were taken from 'Ode to Joy', a poem by Friedrich Schiller at the end of the 18th century and today, the 9th Symphony still represents the values of humanity, tolerance and friendship.
*Open to ages above 8 years old.
