Twenty five years ago today the Berlin Wall fell. Six weeks later, Leonard Bernstein conducted Beethoven's 9th Symphony in the reunited city, a performance where the lyrics of the fourth movement "Ode to Joy" were changed. "Freude" ("Joy") was replaced with "Freiheit" ("Freedom"). It is perhaps the last time that a lion of the Western arts community unambiguously stood up for freedom. This is the sound of freedom ringing, with Schiller rocking the house starting about 1:06 into this hymn to the Human Spirit.
