Beethoven's Ninth Symphony Premieres - Anniversary @ http://www.thenation.com/blog/177182/bill-moyers-explores-amazing-lessons-beethovens-ninth-symphony-our-dark-time

On 7 May 1824, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in D Minor was performed for the first time at Vienna, Austria. Known as the Choral because of his use of voices in symphonic form for the first time, the Ninth was his musical interpretation of Schiller’s Ode to Joy. Beethoven was completely deaf when he composed it, and it was said a soloist had to tug on his sleeve when the performance was over to get him to turn around and see the enthusiastic response he could not hear.
