National Symphony Orchestra presents Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony Christoph Eschenbach passes the baton

Broad Street Review | June 19, 2017

“The fourth movement returned to that exquisite tension of the first, recalling the thunderous passage of the second and gently introducing the simple opening strains of choral section. Then the glorious voice of bass Solomon Howard rang out. The Choral Arts Society of Washington produces a gorgeous sound, and soloists Leah Crocetto (soprano), J’nai Bridges (mezzo-soprano), and Joseph Kaiser (tenor) added to the whole. I was riveted to my seat by the onslaught of glorious, joyful music.” – Camille Bacon-Smith
