What to programme with Beethoven's 9th Symphony!

Cambridge University Musical Society (CUMS) is performing Beethoven's 9th Symphony on Saturday 13th June, in King's College Chapel, conducted by Stephen Cleobury.

Regarding the vexed question of what you programme with the work, CUMS have commissioned a new piece The Sorceror's Mirror from Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. The commission celebrates the university's 800th anniversary. The libretto for the new work is written by Andrew Motion, the Poet Laureate and Maxwell Davies has written a piece for chorus and orchestra.
