File.4 Beethoven Symphony No. 9
(San Mori Mori / music writer)

Speaking of the end of the year is the ninth.
4th movement "Song of Rejoicing". The moment the 100 choirs waiting behind the stage rise up at once! Even if I experience it many times, I get excited.

Anyway, it's very popular.
As professional orchestras perform several times each and also the civic orchestra, there will probably be over 100 concerts across the country, and tens of thousands of people will be intoxicated with the "Song of Joy". A characteristic feature of the bus race now.

As it was supposed to be played frequently a few years after the defeat, the Japanese "9th" favorite year has entered quite well.
The choir also adds to the cast, so it is said that they will mobilize their relatives and earn a new year's salary, but the most important factor of the "ninth" popularity is the fourth movement It is probably because the wonderful melody of "Song of Joy" matched the Japanese sensibility.

Composed by Beethoven, Symphony No. 9.
The premiere was 1824, three years before the death at 56. The last symphony completed. It is a story about 200 years ago from now.

By the way, the "ninth". Do you know where the premiere in Japan took place?
What, POW camp in Tokushima Prefecture!
The year was Taisho 7 (1918).
After World War IIt is a surprise because the German soldiers who became Japanese prisoners of war played in China. This is an event just 100 years ago.

However, although there is a prestigious orchestra that plays on New Year's Eve in Germany, it seems that there is no image of "year-end = ninth."
But for Germans and Europeans, it seems that there is a "Ninth" as something more special and very serious.

When the Vienna State Opera destroyed in the war is rebuilt.
The end of 1989 when the Berlin Wall collapsed.
At the time of East-West Germany reunification the following year.
And above all, "Song of Delight" is adopted as a song of the European Union (EU).
The fact that the lyrics of the poet Syrah's lyrics used in the "Song of Rejoicing" is a human accompaniment and a statement of people's solidarity will prove to be a source of hope for the people of Europe.
And Beethoven's music!
From the late twenties, he was troubled by hearing problems that should be called a musician's life, and he sent a written letter to an acquaintance.
The enthusiasm for creativity always in search of newness and the associated distress.
By the age of 40, both ears were almost unheard of. In other words, "Ninth" is also the composition in that.
Poor health due to hearing loss. Grumpy stubborn person.
An anecdotal story that you are not good at tidying up the room and you moved 60 times.
In other words, Beethoven is a person who has lived a hard life.
That is why the idealistic message of peace, freedom and solidarity never ends with beautifulness, but reaches the hearts of people all over the world as a brighter, more ambitious “light of hope”.

Introduction to the first movement that reminds of the beginning of the universe
Is the second movement a dance of joy and distress?
Beautiful third movement to be heavenly
And start ...
To me, to you, to the world
Resound, "Song of Joy" !!
