About Beethoven's Ninth with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra perform a breathtaking all-Beethoven concert, featuring the master’s final Symphony No. 9, The Choral Symphony, with its climactic Ode to Joy.

After two hundred years Beethoven Ninth remains music’s ultimate affirmation of the indomitable human spirit. No other work delivers this powerful message in music full of rich complexity but accessible by everyone.
