Ode to the Ninth!

Graphic, Diane Carnevale

Tanglewood ends each summer season with Beethoven's 9th symphony, and its euphoric choral music choral music set to Schiller's "Ode to Joy." We have an annual tradition of lying outside on a blanket in the the grass, (a la Tanglewood, but without the crowds!), cranking up the outside speakers, and listening to the live radio broadcast of Tanglewood's season-ending Ninth concert. Nothing like a little Ludwig Van to mark the seasons.

Ending lyrics from the fourth (choral) movement in German and English.
