BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 9 in D Minor
with Jacqueline Echols, Freda Herseth, Scott Piper,
Stephen West, and UMS Choral Union
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 9 in E-flat Major

“Shocking! A chorus and soloists in a finale? It’s just never done!” Ah, but Ludwig van Beethoven was a revolutionary. He didn’t let that stop him from composing what may be the most glorious – and most downloaded and Spotified – piece of music ever written. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 speaks to our higher ideals with a message of joy, sung by a finely matched quartet of soloists whom you’ll long remember. It’s a perfect pairing with Shostakovich’s homage to Beethoven. Without chorus or soloists, Shostakovich fills his work with hidden messages that intrigue listeners even today.
