9/18 Masur's Beethoven 9th

One of the greatest works of music ever written.  The performance here by Kurt Masur is downright apocalyptic....looks like a slightly reduced orchestra, which maybe gives it more of a chamber feel (?).  In any case, enjoy this great performance.

Also cool castle wall backdrop, that never hurts for this kind of thing...

Mélanie Diener : soprano
Marie-nicole Lemieux : Alto
Franz-josef Selig : Basse
Jorma Silvasti : Ténor

Choeur de Radio-France
Maîtrise des Bouches du Rhône

Orchestre National de France
Kurt Masur : Direction.

Lieu : Théâtre Antique d'Orange

And of course you're welcome to follow along with the autograph score...

...and to be completely inappropriate, get your "Beethoven was a DJ" shirt here...
