Finding the wonder in Beethoven's Ninth

September 3, 2015 12:15:00 pm
A chance encounter with Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in a borrowed carsent Kerry Candaele on a journey that eventually led to Following the Ninth, his documentary about the many ways Beethoven's indelible piece of music has inspired, and been a part of, protests and social movements around the world. Chinese students played it in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Leonard Bernstein led a performance of it in Berlin when the wall came down that same year. Chilean women sang it outside the prisons where people were tortured during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. "I just fell in love with this piece," Candaele says, "and it touched me at such a deep level that I had to discover more of Beethoven's works and read about the man."
