Classical Music in a drama (107 min.)
Vienna, 1824. A fictionalized account of the last year of Beethoven’s life starring award-winning actor Ed Harris. In the days before the first performance of the Ninth Symphony, Beethoven needs help with copying out the charts, so a promising student of composition, Anna Holtz, 23, is sent to assist him. She not only aids the transcription of the notes, she provides guidance from the orchestra pit as Beethoven conducts the work’s debut.
