ANZAC Tribute: Beethoven’s Ninth

Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Hamer Hall, Melbourne, Friday 24 April, 2015


From The Last Post ringing through a silent throng of people to a hundred-strong choir ringing out joy to an emotional audience, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s ANZAC Tribute was poignant and fitting. Their focus on unity was refreshing. The MSO Chorus was the highlight, with Schiller’s Ode to Joy in the final movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No 9 a triumphant finish and showing us that music is, after all, the universal language.
