Beethoven Symphony No. 9 available to watch On Demand

Streamed in mesmerising 4K UHD resolution and with Dolby Atmos sound, classical music fans will be able to watch this incredible performance conducted by Johannes Vogel and featuring the 123-strong Synchron Stage Orchestra and choir.   

The final complete symphony to be written by Beethoven, No 9 is regarded by many as both Beethoven's greatest work and as one of the greatest pieces of classical music ever composed.   

Talking about the performance, conductor Johannes Vogel explains “The decision to perform Mahler’s re-orchestration of the Ninth Symphony synchronised perfectly in my mind.  Together, they are two of my most admired composers.  His symphonies are very much influenced by Beethoven.  He should be admired in his bravery to bring Beethoven through time with the use of the early modern 20th century instruments heard in his orchestration”. 

“We now live in an extremely challenging times and hope for more positivity and optimism.  This symphony represents the resilience of the human spirit; full of courage and vision, hope and joy”.  

One of the most important artworks in Western culture, one which symbolises hope, unity and fellowship, the performance will be available to watch On Demand via from December 18th.
