Film Preview

As I have written here, maybe half a dozen times, my co-author in our new Beethoven book, Kerry Candaele, has directed a remarkable film, Following the Ninth, coming out later this year.  (See link to the trailer elsewhere on the blog.)  Now he's posted an excerpt, that covers reactions to the 2nd movement of the Ninth Symphony and -- the subject of a chapter in our book -- the amazing phenomenon of the "Ode to Joy" sung everywhere in Japan every December.
