FOLLOWING THE 9TH: In the Footsteps of Beethoven's Final Symphony
Directed by Kerry Candaele
USA, 2013, 78 minutes, documentary
There will be a handful of tickets available at the door at 7:00 Availability is not guaranteed. PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY.
A special program including "Meet the Filmmaker," with coproducer Greg Mitchell interviewed by WQXR's Elliott Forrest, Beethoven performed on piano by Yashar Yaslowitz before and after the film, and more.
Following the 9th is a moving exploration of the worldwide cultural and political influence of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and the "Ode to Joy," from Chile to China (plus Billy Bragg). Written near the end of Beethoven's life, for himself, the people of his day, and for all generations to come, Beethoven's 9th still resonates as an international anthem of hope. Begin 2014 with a journey into the heart and soul of one of the great works of world art.
The evening begins at 7:30. We've made this a special community event with a program that includes pianist Yashar Yaslowitz performing Beethoven before and after the screening.
