KUAF Sunday Symphony for Dec. 6, 2015: An Expression of Consciousness

The Symphony Orchestra of Montreal comes together with conductor Kent Nagano on a new 6-disc recording of Beethoven’s 9 symphonies. Nagano ruminates on why and how these pieces have become some of the most beloved and recognizable music of all time: “Beethoven Symphonies are the expression of a consciousness seeking to grasp things of the world and envisioning that ‘world’ as an evolutionary process.” Hear highlights and more on tonight’s Sunday Symphony.
