TPCC in collaboration with TPO: BEETHOVEN'S SYMPHONIES NO. 1 & 9

Beethoven had a foot in each of two centuries when he wrote his first symphony. Born a classicist whose mischief led to a "wrong key" start, his first symphony exhibited all the traits one would associate with the composer - brash, impassioned, uncompromising. In this unique pairing of symphonies, watch how Beethoven stumbled across Romanticism. His deafness and genius culminated in the creation of his last symphony, giving us a work so well known and so relevant - for the Ninth continues to be a representation of the unending possibilities of the symphonic form and a message of renewal and hope.
