Thomas Forrest Kelly: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony Then and Now

In this illustrated talk, Thomas Forrest Kelly will take us back to 1824 Vienna and the first performance of what may be the most famous piece of classical music: but in 1824 it was unknown and revolutionary.

Thomas Forrest Kelly is Morton B. Knafel Research Professor of Music at Harvard University, and serves on the faculty of the Historical Performance Program at The Juilliard School. He is the author of Capturing Music (Norton, 2015); First Nights: Five Performance Premieres (Yale, translated into Korean and Chinese); Early Music: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford, translated into German and Hungarian); his The Beneventan Chant (Cambridge) was awarded the Otto Kinkeldey Award of the American Musicological.
