Unfortunately, this concert has already taken place. But not to worry! We will be playing many more concerts soon.

Unthinkable: you are completely deaf and you write the symphony of symphonies. A colossal piece of music from which splashes a universal message of peace and harmony. A message more topical than ever. Two hundred years ago Beethoven wrote his imposing Ninth Symphony. This is celebrated worldwide. Also in The Hague, where Alle Menschen werden Brüder is inextricably linked to the Peace Palace. The Residentie Orkest, an extraordinary quartet of soloists and the fantastic Laurens Symphonic bring you Beethoven's monument to humanity.

Our regular guest conductor Richard Egarr will lead you in the celebration of brotherhood. With his Ninth Symphony, Beethoven wrote perhaps the most beloved symphony in the history of classical music. In any case, he radically changed music history with it. He set to music a musical monument to humanity, culminating in the world-famous "Alle Menschen werden Brüder" from Schiller's poem Ode an die Freude. Beethoven's crown jewel is full of hope and zest for life. You must experience this live once!

"Beethoven's grand Ninth Symphony is considered one of the highlights of classical music and must be heard live at least once in your life."
