Watch: Beethoven’s 9th marks Ukraine’s independence daymain
Slipped Disc was invited to observe Ukraine’s 24th independence anniversary concert last night in Kiev but was unable to attend.
Amid much verbosity and political bombast, music duties were conducted by Kirill Karabits with the Warsaw-based I, Culture orchestra, cilmaxing in the finale of Beethoven’s ninth symphony.
You can watch the full concert here. Beethoven starts at 55 minutes.
