CBC Radio: Beethoven's Nine Symphonies in 9 Days Podcast

In this podcast from Canadian public radio, host Bill Richardson has nine conversations with the Music Director of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Bramwell Tovey about the nine symphonies composed by Ludwig van Beethoven. With a piano by his side to play certain sections of the symphonies, Bramwell Tovey breaks down each symphony into its specific movements and demonstrates the ingenious innovations that Beethoven brought to this type of musical composition. Tovey also tells the stories behind each symphony, including the famous Symphony No. 5 and the Symphony No. 9 with its "Ode to Joy" finale that Beethoven composed when he was completely deaf. This outstanding podcast basically serves as a free audio course covering all of Beethoven's Symphonies.
