NO. 9

Symphony Hall

A magnificent opening! Experience Beethoven’s masterpiece­­­—with its exhilarating “Ode to Joy”—for the first time on our season in 14 years. And with H+H’s acclaimed orchestra performing on the instruments he wrote for, you’ll hear the majesty of this music just as Beethoven intended.

“Suzuki brought such penetrating focus to this sound that every shred of affect was burned away—leaving nothing but pure music in its wake.” 

– The Washington Post
