I have yet to find another piece of classical music which is so moving to me as Schiller's An die Freude in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Perhaps it is because I connect it with the final scene of Immortal Beloved. At anyrate it is an amazing piece.

It's lovely music. The worst thing I can say about it is that it suffers a little from over-exposure. Not to the same extent as the first movement of the 5th, though.

Musics suggested for rating by tommyedison.

Just as I dislike it when classical stations play a single movement from a multi-movement piece I dislike the idea of rating a single movement from a multi-movement piece...so I won't give it a numerical rating.

What I will say is:

1. Beethoven is my favorite composer (and arguably the greatest of all time with J.S. Bach and Mozart as the only other 2 who can be included in that argument).

2. I love Beethoven's Ninth...with the fourth movement being my LEAST favorite (although I lke it very much).
