Surround Studios International Collaboration of Performers, in association with Alexander Goldberg Jero's High Definition Music Card and Russian Philharmonic Orchestra are proud to present Beethoven s 9th Symphony. Beethoven s 9th Symphony is one of the greatest and grandest symphonies not only in his arsenal, but in all of musical history. Written from 1822 to 1824, the piece was performed shortly after its completion on May 7, 1824 in Vienna. It was originally commissioned in 1817 by the Philharmonic Society of London. Rather than start from scratch, Beethoven decided to bring together many of his past sketches, some of which were already finished works, to make his 9th Symphony. Amongst these works is the Choral Fantasy Opus 80, which was written in 1808. The chorus borrows its lyrics from Friedrich Schiller s Ode to Joy. Beethoven s use of vocals in the final movement of Symphony No. 9 is the first time a major composer did so in a symphony. While some of his contemporaries criticized the vocal writing, they could find no faults in the rest of the symphony. This universal agreement of beauty and mastery have kept this piece alive as one of the most commonly performed classical pieces today. When Beethoven premiered the 9th Symphony, he had not been on stage in 12 years. Also, his hearing was almost entirely lost, so that conducting was nearly impossible to do with any accuracy. Nevertheless, Beethoven stood atop the stage behind the conductor s stand and gave a rowdy performance. Of course, his lead was not followed, as he was several measures off at times. Louis Duport was responsible for the actual direction of the orchestra, but the crowd gave Beethoven rousing applause despite his actual efficacy as a conductor. The sheer genius of the composition was enough to draw the adoration of all in attendance. How incredible would it be to hear that first performance? Well, you may just be able to capture that magic with the High Definition Music Card. This form of music recording creates a true to life surround sound with the layers of an actual orchestra. Alexander Goldberg Jero has finally made it possible to experience Beethoven the way he was meant to be heard. Immerse yourself in the three dimensional majesty of the HDMC with one of the world most powerful and beautiful pieces of music, Beethoven s 9th. You ve probably heard the piece before, at least once if not dozens of times. But you ve never heard it like this. Close your eyes and picture yourself amongst those first lucky few in the Theater am Karntnertor in Vienna that got to hear this wondrous symphony in person. It is only possible through the High Definition Music Card.
