Beethoven's Ninth

Sep 8, 2011

This Friday and Saturday, the Utah Symphony will perform an Beethoven Ninth Symphony under the direction of Maestro Thierry Fischer. We're taking the opportunity to rebroadcast our conversation on the story behind the most famous piece of classical music in Western culture. Our guest is the Harvard professor Thomas Forrest Kelly - who says that to appreciate the Ninth Symphony, you have to hear it the way audiences did when it was first performed in Vienna, in 1824.  (Rebroadcast)

Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10, Utah Symphony will perform Beethoven's Ninth - along with John Adams' On the Transmigration of Souls. Both performances begin at 8:00 p.m. For tickets and information, call 801-533-NOTE or click here
