    “175th birthdays don’t happen every day – and the anniversary of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic’s first ever concert in 1840 calls for a very special musical celebration. But then, Beethoven’s Ninth has never been just another symphony – from tragic opening to climactic, world-embracing ‘Ode to Joy’, it’s an artistic experience with the power to change lives. Vasily Petrenko, the Orchestra, the Choir and a quartet of world-class soloists will give it their all, and as we look forward to the next century-and-three-quarters, they toast our founding fathers with one of the highlights of the Society’s early years: Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht, a secular cantata about survival against adversity and was given on the occasion of the Society’s 100th anniversary”
