As a universal language, music is understood by everyone, bringing together opposites and what seems irreconcilable. The »Ode to Joy«, the final chorus of Beethoven’s groundbreaking Ninth Symphony, is an example for the unifying power of music and has become a resounding symbol for peace and intercultural dialogue. Where words fail, music can speak. Yesterday, today and in the future.
The motifs »Ode to Joy« are artistic contributions of the Dresden Music Festival in cooperation with BOROS on the occasion of the #WOD — Weltoffenes Dresden, February 2022
