Jordi_savall_small It's possibly the most iconic piece of music in the entire Western classical repertoire: Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, with its soaring "Ode to Joy" choral finale. But when performed by early music ensemble Le Concert des Nations under trailblazing conductor Jordi Savall, things sound quite a bit different. In this opening concert from the 2021 Beethovenfest – part of the composer's 250th birthday bonanza – you'll hear Beethoven as you've never heard him before.
