Salt Lake City, UT – This weekend the Utah Symphony will perform an evening of Beethoven's work - including the 9th Symphony. So we're taking the opportunity to rebroadcast our conversation on the story behind the 9th. Our guest the Harvard professor Thomas Forrest Kelly says to appreciate the 9th symphony, you have to hear it in the way audiences when it was first performed in Vienna, in 1824. (Rebroadcast)
