Louisville Orchestra presents Beethoven’s 9th
Conceived on a gigantic scale, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is an exaltation of the ideal of universal brotherhood. In his only symphony to use a chorus and vocal soloists, Beethoven traced the line from anguish to joy, and from doubt to hope. In addition, Teddy Abrams has created a song cycle for soprano and full orchestra that will premiere at the May 11th performance.
