The Ninth

Haut de la page

"Embrace each other, you living millions. Let this kiss go to the whole world." Schiller's poem "Ode to Joy" is the setting for the final movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. This hymn to universal brotherhood, first performed in 1824, has been adopted as a symbol by romantic poets, anarchists, communists, Nazis and the European Union. How has one musical work inspired so many, from humanists to tyrants?
