Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth is regarded as the culmination of the stormy, mostly politically inspired "odd" symphonies, which are particularly captivating in their final movements. Beethoven wrote the symphony for the Philharmonic Society in London, and it is significant that he admired the system of government of the constitutional monarchy in England. In echo to his enthusiasm for the values of the French Revolution, ennobled - or sublimated? - this commitment later became general human-utopian dimensions: "All men become brothers". Through historical performance practice, Beethoven's symphonies have experienced new and surprising readings in recent years. The multiple award-winning musician and conductor Jordi Savall also belongs to this "school". He takes Beethoven's metronome indications seriously, relies on surprising changes in tempo and dynamic contrasts. The name of his orchestra is (European) program: "Le Concert des Nations".
