PUTS Silent Night Elegy (SLSO Co-commission)
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 9

Even in crisis, humans have the capacity for love. Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony culminates in his optimistic vision for the future, the “Ode to Joy.” In Kevin Puts’ Pulitzer-winning Silent Night, a spontaneous wartime truce brings enemies together. Stéphane Denève, a cast of soloists, the SLSO musicians and chorus celebrate the best of humanity.
