A story of peaceful coexistence and harmony.                                               Biographies

We are living at a time of a united Europe, and the common denominator and anthem of this unity is the ‘Ode to Joy’. Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is the summary of his work, the powerful final chord of a great path of growth, as well as a pioneer of the Romantic era, symbolising the quest to escape from darkness to light, the struggle between good and evil.
