Live Broadcast from the Proms: Daniel Barenboim and Beethoven's 9th
July 26, 2012
St. Paul, Minn. —
On Friday, July 27, at noon tune into Classical MPR to hear a live broadcast from the BBC Proms, hosted by Fred Child. Daniel Barenboim's Beethoven cycle reaches its climax with a youthful take on the traditional annual Proms performance of the Ninth, perhaps the richest, most provocative statement in Western art music. An impressive team of soloists joins the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra to project the finale's inclusive vision of hope, reconciliation and hard-won triumph. Hosted by Fred Child.
