Beethoven: 9th Symphony - Movement IV - "Ode to Joy"

Admittedly, this is a little bit of a cheat since due to naming conventions so many pieces have a numer in the title. It's still a favourite piece of music and a joy to share, and it's considered by many critics as one of his greatest works. Many consider it one of the greatest compositions in the western musical canon and in my opinion it's probably one of the best-known works in classical music. The symphony was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony (thus making it a choral symphony) and giving rise to its full title: The Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125: The Choral

About Me

I'm Jack, a recent retiree looking for a new hobby. Apparently 'annoying my girlfriend' isn't the best use of my days. Her opinion, not mine

I'm a life-long science-fiction and superheroes fan, and a voracious reader. I enjoy movies, fishing, astronomy, and gardening.

I live in Wales with my wife, our girlfriend and an ever growing collection of four-legged friends.
