The Gramophone Classical Music Podcast

May 7, 2024

To mark the 200th anniversary of the premiere of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in Vienna, which took place on May 7, 1824, Gramophone’s podcast this week focuses on the work.

Antonello Manacorda has just completed a cycle of the nine symphonies with Akademie Potsdam for Sony Classical, including a brand-new Ninth. James Jolly went to visit him at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden , where he was conducting a run of Bizet’s Carmen.

This Gramophone Podcast is produced in association with Wigmore Hall.
