Friedrich von Schiller's Ode to Joy in Beethoven's setting for

four soloists, chorus

and orchestra has taken on a special meaning as a fanfare for

peace, tolerance and

liberty all over the world.

Beethoven's drafts for his opus 125 - the last in the cycle of

symphonies - date back

to the year 1815 or 1816. For decades he had been wanting to

set Schiller's hymn to

music, but it was only after the first three movements of the

9th Symphony were

almost completed that he decided to compose a choral finale

for the last movement

based on parts of the poem.

In the conventions of the 1820s it was nothing less than

revolutionary to end a

symphony in this manner - and at just over an hour the work

was also unusually

long. At its first performance, in Vienna on May 7, 1824, the

audience was typically

enthusiastic, while the critics, as so often before, found the

composer's unique

ideas too novel and daring.

Beethoven himself could not hear the clamour and the shouts of

'Bravo', as he was

completely deaf by this time.


O Freunde, nicht diese T?e!

Sondern lasst uns angenehmere anstimmen

und freudenvollere!

Freude, sch?er G?terfunken,

Tochter aus Elysium,

Wir betreten feuertrunken.

Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!

Deine Zauber binden wieder

Was die Mode streng geteilt;

Alle Menschen werden Br?er

Wo dein sanfter Fl?el weilt.

Wem der grosse Wurf gelungen

Eines Freundes Freund zu sein,

Wer ein holdes Weib errungen,

Mische seinen Jubel ein!

Ja, wer auch nur eine Seele

Sein nennt auf dem Erdenrund!

Und wer's nie gekonnt, der stehle

Weinend sich aus diesem Bund.

Freude trinken alle Wesen

An den Br?ten der Natur;

Alle Guten, alle B?en,

Folgen ihrer Rosenspur.

K?se gab sie uns und Reben,

Einen Freund, gepr?t im Tod;

Wollust ward dem Wurm gegeben,

Und der Cherub steht vor Gott!

Froh, wie seine Sonnen fliegen

Durch des Himmels pr?ht'gen Plan,

Laufet, Br?er, eure Bahn,

Freudig, wie ein Held zum Siegen.

Seid umschlungen, Millionen.

Dieser Kuss der ganzen Welt!

Br?er! ?er'm Sternenzelt

Muss ein lieber Vater wohnen.

Ihr st?zt nieder, Millionen?

Ahnest du den Sch?fer, Welt?

Such ihn ?er'm Sternenzelt!

?er Sternen muss er wohnen.
