When you mention Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony , you’re talking about one of the most important pieces in the history of music. It’s the Ode to Joy, it’s a jewel of classicism and one of the most popular and best-known symphonies in the world. It almost changed Beethoven’s life since many people considered his decision to compose an hour of symphonic music with a choir at the end to be a sign of madness. Luckily, over time, this choral symphony has become one of the most transcendental and important works in classical music. In fact, in 2001 it was declared part of the spiritual heritage of mankind by UNESCO and it is considered by many to be a symbol of the freedom of men and women all over the world.
