For the weekly feature this time, just a bit of Leonard Bernstein conducting the finale of the Ninth Beethoven at the famous 1979 concert in Berlin in 1979 to mark the falling of the Wall, substituting "Freiheit" so it is the "Ode to Freedom." This is featured in the new chapter by Kerry Candaele in the just-published expanded edition of our book Journeys With Beethoven. Kerry's film that inspired the book gets its world premiere in Santa Barbara on June 4. The full Bernstein here.
