A turning point for classical music composition. Take a seat for our grandest concert of the season, Ludwig van Beethoven’s 'Symphony No. 9, Ode to Joy', masterfully performed by Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and Chorale Acadienne. Ode to Joy is widely considered to be Beethoven’s greatest work, and one of the most supreme achievements in the history of western music. In the field of symphonic music, there is no bigger revolutionary than Beethoven, whose nine symphonies were heavily influenced by socio-political events of his time, as well as his own political views and engagement as an artist and enlightened citizen. His work created a musical footprint for all symphonic music created by later composers.
