Australia has voted Ludwig van Beethoven’s epic Ninth Symphony featuring the “Ode to Joy” as their number one in the Classic 100: Beethoven.

ABC Classic’s annual Classic 100 countdown was set amidst the global backdrop of coronavirus lockdowns, with the Ninth Symphony a fitting choice for top spot as people have sought to connect through music across the world.

This 8CD set contains music from all 100 of the best-loved works by Australia’s favourite composer, Ludwig van Beethoven: the easy grace and charm of his youth, his groundbreaking symphonies and string quartets, the anguish and triumph of his struggles with deafness, and the visionary genius of his final years.

It includes a brand new recording of the famous ‘Für Elise’ by Tamara-Anna Cislowska, ABC Classic presenter and internationally-celebrated pianist. She joins a Who’s Who of Australian performers, including Jayson Gillham, Nicole Car, Gerard Willems, Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Anna Goldsworthy, the Goldner String Quartet, the Seraphim Trio and more.

In 2019, Beethoven was revealed as Australia’s favourite composer, topping the Classic 100: Composer countdown. And so in 2020, to celebrate his 250th birthday, we dedicated the Classic 100 to Beethoven.

Beethoven epitomises the hope and humanity at the core of music’s purpose, from the inspiring story of the deaf man who became the greatest composer of all time, to the moments when Beethoven has provided a soundtrack to the great events of history, to the comfort and joy of his music in our everyday lives.
