Notes & Reviews:
Schiller's 'Ode to Joy' although pre dating the French Revolution, was the nearest a German artist had come to espousing the same lofty ideas of equality and universal brotherhood. The great tune in the finale has become a motif for freedom the world over, and has become symbolic with freedom especially since the famous performance to celebrate the unification of Germany.
