Symphony No. 8 in F major op. 93
Symphony No. 9 in D minor op. 125


Beethoven composed the Eighth, his shortest symphony, in 1812. At first sight, it appears to be a return to Mozart and Haydn, however, at the same time the composer captivates the listener with originality and witty details, while continually questioning traditional forms. Those are then blown up completely by his Ninth, which has held a unique position in the history of music from the moment it premiered in 1824, with its famous choral finale and its vast dimensions. By setting Friedrich Schiller’s Ode »To Joy« to music, Beethoven incorporated a choir and solo singers into a symphony for the first time in the genre’s history, and by doing so he took a decisive step towards the Programme Music of the 19th century. By now, »Freude schöner Götterfunken«, from the final movement, has as Anthem of Europe become a leitmotif for peace and understanding between nations, and in 2001, UNESCO added the autograph of the symphony to its Memory of the World Programme Heritage list.
