Beethoven’s Ninth

Beethoven transformed orchestral music and his spectacular Symphony No.9 represents the pinnacle of his achievements. One of the best-known works in the western classical repertoire, the Choral Symphony, provides the climax to a concert of Beethoven works performed by the Southbank Centre's Royal Philharmonia orchestra and chorus at the Royal Festival Hall.
 
The concert opens with the soulful and elegant Piano Concerto No.3, then followed by the emotional and powerful Coriolan Overture, before culminating with Beethoven’s revolutionary Ninth Symphony, performed by soloists at the Philharmonia Chorus. Four varied and emotional movements conclude with the resounding Ode to Joy, an exhilarating finale for both an inspiring classical work and an evening of exceptional music.

Beethoven Symphony No.9 Choral will be performed at The Royal Festival Hall on 18 March at 7:30pm. Tickets are between £16.50 - £54.50. Find out more and book tickets here.
