Join Conservatory of Music's Chair of Music History and Literature Kristi Brown-Montesano for an exploration of Beethoven’s creative and personal journey to his final symphony, a work that has sustained musical, cultural and political significance for nearly 200 years. This 4-week course will focus on the genesis and premiere of the Ninth Symphony, including the historical context, musical antecedents, the inventiveness of the composer’s late style, and the choice of Schiller’s “Ode to Joy” for the final choral movement. Classes will be held online.
