Satellite Symphony - Beethoven and One Woman's Dream
The story of an irrepressible dreamer of peace through music, and an audacious dream come true. In December, 1988, at Montréal's Place des Arts, a little-known French conductor named Françoise Legrand conducted an international all-star symphony, the World Philharmonic Orchestra she had founded, in a very special concert. It was a performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and its great Ode to Joy, incorporating a live satellite broadcast of choirs from Moscow, Geneva and San Francisco.
