BEETHOVEN
Symphony No. 9

Beethoven’s mighty Ninth Symphony, nicknamed “The Choral”, opens MPO’s 20th season. Its unprecedented use of 4 vocal soloists and a chorus in the last movement, with words from Schiller’s Ode to Joy, marks it as one of his greatest works. The concert opens with the premiere of Vivian Chua’s new work commissioned by MPO to commemorate this milestone season. Naohisa Furusawa leads a large chorus comprised of singers from Malaysia, the UK and Japan.
