Music has the power to evoke strong emotions, and Beethoven’s final symphony fully embodies this idea. It is ultimately a celebration of the brotherhood of mankind. Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” theme of the fourth movement is one of the most recognized melodies in history. Performances of the have taken place at key moments in history, including 1989 in East Berlin, shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, when Bernstein conducted an orchestra made up of players from many countries, including East and West Germany.
