Beethoven 9 with VOICES NZ and NZSO

23 & 24 November, Auckland/Wellington

Music Director Edo de Waart’s final Masterworks concerts for 2018 highlight two milestones in not only Beethoven’s career, but the symphonic repertoire. Hear in one concert the composer’s journey from Classical to Romantic and in the process changing music forever.

His gargantuan Symphony No. 9, written when he had become completely deaf, is one of his greatest and most loved works. With four fantastic soloists – soprano Madeleine Pierard, mezzo-soprano Kristin Darragh, tenor Simon O’Neill and bass Anthony Robin Schneider – and premiere choir Voices New Zealand for the fourth movement’s ‘Ode to Joy’, this is an event no one should miss.
