Beethoven’s last symphony No. 9 marks a triumphant and glorious climax. Beethoven was the first composer to include chorus and vocal soloists in his final movement. The Symphony was completed in 1824, when Beethoven was completely deaf and was premiered on Friday 7 May 1824, in the Kärntnertortheater in Vienna. The audience received the work with an ovation. When the piece ended, Beethoven, being deaf, was still conducting.
The soprano soloist had to make him turn around so that he could see the applause.
