Beethoven’s Ninth symphony is the summit of any Beethoven cycle – and some might say of classical music itself. But there’s a lifetime of experience to live through before we get to its triumphant climax and Vasily Petrenko, the Orchestra and the acclaimed Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir come together to plumb its depths, scale its heights, and celebrate together in that final, transcendent Ode to Joy.

Six ravishing songs for mezzo-soprano of longing from fellow-radical hector Berlioz set the scene: as Beethoven once put it, music that comes from the heart and goes to the heart.
