Beethoven—Symphony No. 9

Lecture no. 10 from the course: The 30 Greatest Orchestral Works

Beethoven—Symphony No. 9

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 48 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

Learn about three critical moments where Beethoven “reinvented” himself in the face of terrible hardships, leading to his redefining the genre of the symphony in this historic, monumental work. Study the Ninth Symphony’s musical architecture and dramatic narrative, from its depiction of the struggle between the heroic and the tragic to the final resolution of that struggle in a utopian vision of the future, realized in the celestial “Ode to Joy.”
