Comments about PBS Ode to Joy: Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 DVD:

Touch the edge of the universe through the genius of Ludwig Van Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. Journey there with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and the Westminster Symphonic Choir. The orchestra and choir are joined by soprano Ah Young Hong, mezzo-soprano Leah Wool, tenor William Burden and bass-baritone Mark S. Doss, under the direction of conductor Mark Laycock. Eight, high-definition cameras and surround-sound audio capture the depth and magnitude of Beethoven's Ninth as performed in historic Alexander Hall on the campus of Princeton University. An introduction to the performance, narrated by actor John Lithgow, gives a unique perspective on music history with the stories of the two great men central to the concert – American scholar, philanthropist and human rights advocate William H. Scheide, and Austrian composer Ludwig van Beethoven. The performance was filmed during Princeton alumni Scheide's 100th birthday celebration and on location in Vienna, Austria. You will not be the same afterwards.
