On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall (November 9th 1989) there will be a concert with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and Pink Floyd’s The Wall. The concert-event will be held on November 10th (ideally understood as the real, first day without a wall) at the former barracks Guido Reni. It was 1979 when a concept album other than the usual changed the history of rock. The disc, made by Pink Floyd, was called The Wall. In July 1989 Roger Waters released a radio interview in which they asked him when the album would be performed live again. The Pink Floyd leader replied: “Only if the Berlin Wall falls”. A few months later, on November 9th 1989, the Berlin wall was demolished: and we are in history. In the concert-event of 10 November 2019, the Città di Roma Symphony Orchestra conducted by M ° Pier Giorgio Dionisi will carry out the ‘contemporary fusion’ between The Wall and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in world premiere. In 2001, the score and text were declared by UNESCO as “Memory of the World”; in this regard, the theme of the fourth movement – the famous Hymn to Joy based on a text by F. Schiller – was adapted by Herbert Von Karajan and adopted in 1972 as the European Hymn. It is in this context of suggestive and romantic fusions reworked in a contemporary key that the Beethovenian dream of a universe linked by brotherhood and friendship is presented in its most powerful actuality. There is always a need to break down some walls!
