Beethovens Ninth is the summit of any Beethoven cycle; some might say of classical music itself. All the more reason to pair it with the uproarious Eighth pure comedy, delivered with a punch.

Combine Gardiners lifetime of experience with players who understand this music from the inside out, and theres infinitely more to the Ninth symphony than simple optimism. Theres never been a better time to rediscover it. I feel that Beethoven is one of the very first composers who speaks to us as a human being says Eliot Gardiner. He lets the mask drop and allows us to see right into his soul.
