Leonard Bernstein

Leonard Bernstein at the Berlin Wall, 1989
Andreas Meyer-Schwickerath

When I listen to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, I wonder if he had any idea how the central words of the chorus would be taken up as a rallying cry, right at the apex of history, more than a hundred years after he set them to music.
