Beethoven Symphony No. 9 

August 23: For decades, the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Tanglewood season has concluded with a joyous performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.

This concert features the orchestra’s most recent performance of that iconic work, led by frequent BSO guest conductor Giancarlo Guerrero and featuring four outstanding American soloists along with, as always, our own Tanglewood Festival Chorus. Best known for its glorious theme-and-variations finale setting Friedrich Schiller’s “Ode to Joy,” the Ninth Symphony was Beethoven’s final completed orchestral score, a work whose extraordinary emotional power and innovative artistry is still compelling in 2020 as we celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year.

Available August 23, 2020 at 2:30PM through August 30
