Join artists around the world for Beethoven’s 250th birthday, focusing on the seminal “Ode to Joy” from his Ninth Symphony. Originally scheduled to be a yearlong project led by Marin Alsop with performances across six continents, this global celebration has now gone online, inviting artists of all disciplines to share videos that inspire joy. Along with Alsop, this special episode includes violinist and president of Beethoven-Haus Bonn Daniel Hope and former US poet laureate Tracy K. Smith, plus performances by Joyce DiDonato with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and the Stay at Home Choir with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra. Highlights from recent appearances by Emanuel Ax, Leonidas Kavakos, Yo-Yo Ma, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and São Paulo Symphony Orchestra (OSESP) complete the festivities.
