Mozart's Attic Sunday September 26th at 6:00 p.m.

Herbert von Karajan

The premiere of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony was a rare immediate triumph for the composer, ending with the cheers of the audience.

Beethoven could hear neither the premiere nor the cheers, but his final symphony has thrilled listeners for nearly 200 years now. We’ll hear Herbert von Karajan’s reading with the Berlin Philharmonic -- one of the great recordings of this iconic work — on this Sunday’s program.
