Hamburg Symphony Orchestra - Beethoven's 9th Symphony

To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven, Abu Dhabi Classics will host probably the most famous piece of classical music ever written, the 9th Symphony. More than 100 musicians and 70 singers will take the stage to perform the 9th Symphony at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday 5 February. 
Composed between 1821 and 1824, the year it premiered, the 9th Symphony was Beethoven’s last symphony and marked a turning point in musical history, as the culmination of the Vienna Classical Period and the beginning of the 19th century Romantic period. The words were taken from Ode to Joy, a poem by Friedrich Schiller at the end of the 18th century, and today, the 9th Symphony still represents the values of humanity, tolerance and friendship.
