Beethoven - Symphony no. 9

While New Year in the UK is often associated with concerts of Viennese waltzes on the 1st of January, in Austria, Germany and Switzerland it is the New Year’s Eve concert (Silvesterkonzert) which marks the turning of the year… and they usually focus on one famous work: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. With its fourth movement choral setting of Schiller’s Ode to Joy proclaiming universal brotherhood, it is a fine way to enter the New Year with hopes raised.

Join us on 2nd January to enjoy a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth from the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, after which we’ll enjoy a few Viennese dances for good measure!
