Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra - Beethoven: Symphony No. 9

Beethoven: Symphony No. 9 / Karajan, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra

This is a great performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, which he completed in 1824. The Ninth is one of the most famous symphonies ever written. It is an amazing classical work. The first movement is very stormy at times and is my favorite. The final movements choral section is most popular. The Caroline Overture, which is also on here, is from 1807 and is a very good work.
