BEETHOVEN / Jan Antonin

Beethoven 9

Beethoven believed that music could unleash change and revolution, and set the example himself. His Ninth Symphony unites his genius and his guiding worldview: the idea of human solidarity and universal brotherhood into one musical masterpiece.

In 2016, Magnus Lindberg was given the honour – or challenge! – of composing a new work for the opening for the Ninth. “If I had to choose one composer, it would be Beethoven. He is still the ultimate example of what it means to be a contemporary composer.”
