Sort order. Sep 04, Becky Lu rated it it was amazing Shelves: classical-music-symphonic-scores. What a breath takingly written musical accomplishment!!! I'm speechless whenever I get to watch a concert of this program live. The movement has a thematic unity, in which every part is based on either the main theme, the "Seid umschlungen" theme, or some combination of the two. The text is largely taken from Schiller 's " Ode to Joy ", with a few additional introductory words written specifically by Beethoven shown in italics.
For the full libretto, including all repetitions, see German Wikisource. Oh friends, not these sounds! Let us instead strike up more pleasing and more joyful ones! Joy, beautiful spark of divinity, Daughter from Elysium , We enter, burning with fervour, heavenly being, your sanctuary! Your magic brings together what custom has sternly divided.
All men shall become brothers, wherever your gentle wings hover. Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund! Und wer's nie gekonnt, der stehle Weinend sich aus diesem Bund! Whoever has been lucky enough to become a friend to a friend, Whoever has found a beloved wife, let him join our songs of praise!
Yes, and anyone who can call one soul his own on this earth! Any who cannot, let them slink away from this gathering in tears! Every creature drinks in joy at nature's breast; Good and Evil alike follow her trail of roses. She gives us kisses and wine, a true friend, even in death; Even the worm was given desire, and the cherub stands before God. Gladly, just as His suns hurtle through the glorious universe, So you, brothers, should run your course, joyfully, like a conquering hero. Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
Be embraced, you millions! This kiss is for the whole world! Brothers, above the canopy of stars must dwell a loving father. Do you bow down before Him, you millions? Do you sense your Creator, o world? Seek Him above the canopy of stars! He must dwell beyond the stars. Towards the end of the movement, the choir sings the last four lines of the main theme, concluding with " Alle Menschen ", before the soloists sing for one last time the song of joy at a slower tempo. The chorus repeats parts of " Seid umschlungen, Millionen!
Music critics almost universally consider the Ninth Symphony one of Beethoven's greatest works,  and among the greatest musical works ever written. The finale, however, has its detractors. No one will ever surpass the sublimity of the first movement, but it will be an easy task to write as badly for voices as is done in the last movement.
Conductors in the historically informed performance movement, notably Roger Norrington ,  have used Beethoven's suggested tempos, to mixed reviews. Benjamin Zander has made a case for following Beethoven's metronome markings, both in writing  and in performances with the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and Philharmonia Orchestra of London. A number of conductors have made alterations in the instrumentation of the symphony.
Notably, Richard Wagner doubled many woodwind passages, a modification greatly extended by Gustav Mahler ,  who revised the orchestration of the Ninth to make it sound like what he believed Beethoven would have wanted if given a modern orchestra. Beethoven's writing for horns and trumpets throughout the symphony mostly the 2nd horn and 2nd trumpet is sometimes altered by performers to avoid large leaps those of a 12th or more , as leaps of this sort are very difficult to perform on brass instruments and may be consistently and flawlessly executed only by highly proficient musicians.
Beethoven's indication that the 2nd bassoon should double the basses in measures — of the finale was not included in the Breitkopf parts, though it was included in the full score. The British premiere was presented on 21 March by its commissioners, the Philharmonic Society of London , at its Argyll Rooms conducted by Sir George Smart and with the choral part sung in Italian. The American premiere was presented on 20 May by the newly formed New York Philharmonic at Castle Garden in an attempt to raise funds for a new concert hall , conducted by the English-born George Loder with the choral part translated into English for the first time.
It was later reissued on CD. It was the first of three complete recordings of the Ninth that Bernstein made. He made his second recording of the piece with the Vienna Philharmonic for Deutsche Grammophon , in On both occasions, the chorus was prepared by Margaret Hillis. There have been various attempts to record the Ninth to come closer to what Beethoven's contemporaries would have heard, i.
Benjamin Zander made a recording of the Ninth with the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and noted soprano Dominique Labelle who first performed the work with Robert Shaw , following Beethoven's own metronome markings. It was first released by Deutsche Grammophon in on their early music Archiv Produktion label as part of his complete cycle of the Beethoven symphonies.
Many later composers of the Romantic period and beyond were influenced specifically by Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. An important theme in the finale of Johannes Brahms' Symphony No. When this was pointed out to Brahms , he is reputed to have retorted "Any fool can see that!

Sinclair xxvi It is scored for strings, voices, trumpet, celesta, piano with a distant choir of harp and muted strings. Brodhead 3 The list overlooks the presence of bassoon, tuba, and celesta.
