About this Performance

Written when Beethoven was completely deaf, his epic Ninth Symphony has become the go-to composition for people to celebrate joy and our common humanity. The creativity that erupts through the first three movements achieves an ecstatic climax at the finale when voices are added. To begin the evening, Dudamel gives world premieres of music by Peruvian-born composer Gonzalo Garrido-Lecca and Francisco Cortés-Álvarez from Mexico.

Beethoven’s 9th is supported by an Edgerton Foundation grant.
