Ode to Joy

Ode to Joy

In 1989, to mark the collapse of the Berlin Wall, Leonard Bernstein conducted Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, changing the word Joy (“Freude”) to Freedom (“Freiheit”). No other work could so greatly encompass all of humanity’s struggles to live freely and joyfully. It is introduced by his First Symphony, the endeavour which began Beethoven’s eternal, unsurpassed symphonic legacy.
