The Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae and the Orfeó Català will perform the last symphony by the German composer on Monday, September 21st.
After having performed the other eight symphonies, the Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae (OCM) and the voices of the Orfeó Català will play Beethoven’s Ninth next Monday, September 21st. The Symphony No. 9 is the last of the German composer's symphonies, to be considered revolutionary for its time for various reasons, for example because it is the longest of all and includes unusual instruments for those times. The Ninth is one of the most famous pieces of classical music: the fourth and last movement, also known as the Ode to Joy, is the official anthem of the European Union since 1985 and, since 2003, the score has been declared a World Heritage Site.
The Orfeó Català adds its voices to the occasion: the soprano Marta Mathéu, the mezzo-soprano Tànit Bono, the tenor Marc Sala and the baritone Josep-Ramon Olivé. Under the direction of Tomàs Grau, the OCM offers a concert that is included in the series by Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae and that celebrates the ‘Beethoven Year’.
The concert will take place on Monday 21st at 8 p.m. at the Palau de la Música Catalana. Ticket prices range from 18 to 56 euros and can be purchased on this link.
