Symphony No. 9 (Choral)Vladimir Jurowski
mezzo sopranoJohn Daszak
baritoneLondon Philharmonic Choir
Over the course of his career, Beethoven changed music. For some, he had changed mankind too. In his final symphony the composer captured the most startling journey of all – from a brutal, joyless world to one of uplifting and embracing brotherhood. How did he do it? By writing his most vivid music yet, and employing – for the first time in a symphony – a chorus of voices proclaiming uplifting texts by Friedrich Schiller. Vladimir Jurowski conducts his first Ninth with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, and before it, Julian Anderson’s Alleluia,
a musical vision of ‘all creation singing aloud’.
