Tchaikovsky “Ode to Joy”

Tchaikovsky “Ode to Joy”

Absolutely taken with this piece on my first listen, and I teared up at around 24 minutes and again at the finish. It is full of humanity and warmth and the triumph not of the will, but of the brotherhood of man. That it was done as Tchaikovsky’s graduation exercise only points to the talent and promise ahead of the then-young composer.
