Notes & Reviews:

With this DVD Arthaus Musik presents the live recording of an extraordinary concert: the Bavarian Radio Choir and Orchestra conducted by Mariss Jansons perform Palestrina's motet "Tu es Petrus" and Beethoven's 'Symphony No. 9' in a concert given in honour of Pope Benedict XVI in the great audience hall of the Vatican. The final chorus of Beethoven's symphony "Freude, schener Getterfunken", based on Friedrich Schiller's "Ode to Joy", is one of the most-loved classical pieces worldwide. This music is especially suitable for connecting people from different cultures crossing all material and immaterial borders. Enter this special concert atmosphere and enjoy the address given by the pope himself, which is available on this DVD.
