Beethoven's Ninth Friday Afternoon

Tune in Friday at 3 PM to hear Beethoven's 9th Symphony. Over the past two months Barney Sherman has cycled through notable recent recordings of the other eight, led by conductors Osmo Vanska, Jos van Immerseel, Andrew Manze, Joshua Bell, Paavo Jarvi, Ivan Fischer, and Esa-Pekka Salonen.  Whose Ninth will complete the cycle? Hint: it will be very different from the others. Join us at around 3 PM to hear it!
