“I think if we hear these voices from everywhere — from the audience, from us, the people, then it comes much closer to the original meaning of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9”. These are the words of Iván Fischer, with whom our Choir, together with Konzerthausorchester Berlin, performed three concerts with Beethoven’s greatest work (April 28, 29 and 30, 2018). The Choir member sang from the audience, spread among the listeners, thus reflecting not only Fischer’s concept, but, ultimately, Beethoven’s ideals in the famous Ode to Joy.
