Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony has entered the minds and souls of music lovers to such a degree that each performance becomes an event before the first note is played. This fusion of majestic music, poetry, and insight of what brings humanity together, capped off by the sublime choral finale with its unforgettable Ode to Joy, is among music’s most transcendent experiences and a much-needed symbol for freedom today.
