Following the Ninth is a cinematic documentary celebration of the most profound musical testament to tolerance, peace, and connection across all borders the world has shared for centuries. A tapestry of cultures, musicality, voices, and ideas, Following the Ninth traces an indelible path from Beethoven’s pen to the sights and sounds of virtually every corner of the world where his final symphony has sounded. This film celebrates the 190th anniversary of the premier of Beethoven’s 9th in Vienna on May 7, 1824, with Beethoven himself conducting.
Filmmaker Kerry Candaele will be in attendance.
Following the Ninth was completed with the support of the Philharmonic Society of Orange County and generous support from Phillip N. and Mary A. Lyons.
