Ludwig van Beethoven took as much time to compose his final symphony as his eight others combined, and it's no surprise. His Ninth is a monumental feat, showcasing daring innovation, symphonic mastery, and vocal prowess. Beethoven's influence echoes in the music of Brahms, Dvořák, and Mahler, shaping musical history. Today, the Ninth remains beloved, thanks to its message of joy and unity, particularly in the Ode to Joy inspired by Friedrich Schiller's poem. An iconic performance awaits, featuring conductor emeritus Jaap van Zweden leading the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, the Flemish Radio Choir, and exceptional soloists—a concert destined for legend.
