UP Symphonic Orchestra to perform Beethoven’s Ninth

The latest What’s Up? newsletter announces that the University of the Philippines Symphonic Orchestra will be performing Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 125 “Choral” at the UP Theater on December 7, 9 PM 6 PM (Philippine time). As a big Beethoven and classical music fan, I’m really looking forward to watching it. I just hope it’s for free; well, even if it’s not, I’d try to save cash just to watch this. The concert is for free.

Here is the symphony, as conducted by Herbert von Karajan and performed by the Berlin Philharmonic. It may be worth noting that in this version, the exposition is not repeated (as it should have) in the first, second and third movements, so Karajan’s version is shorter than most renditions of the Ninth.

This is part one. Here is part two.

    Hello, Gian! Yup, this is Jayjay of Archaeo 2. Unfortunately, I have no information so far regarding the tickets — if they’re free or not — for UP Symphonic’s performance. I hope I can afford it if it’s not free.
