The Symphony Orchestra of the National Theater Claudio Santoro wraps up the cycle dedicated to Ludwig van Beethoven with two presentations of the classic piece “Symphony No. 9”, one of the most known in the history of classical music.

Maestro Claudio Cohen, conductor of the orchestra, says that the piece was last in the cycle because it was necessary to get a venue large enough to hold the necessary orchestra and choir. The concert will be held at the Auditorium Master of Centro de Convenções Ulysses Guimarães (Ulysses Guimarães Convention Center), one of the largest halls in the city.

The Symphony No. 9 is among the last works of Beethoven. It’s a very mature piece, very thoughtful. It is important to pay attention to the author’s musical discourse. It was the first symphony in which the voice was introduced.

Finalized in 1824 and known as” the ninth “, the work is composed of four movements, the last one formed by the Ode to joy, written to be sung by a choir.
