Intriguing investigation into Beethoven’s ninth symphony, Lesson 21 weaves the stories of an enthusiastic musician, a brilliant Professor and a village inhabited by strange characters, from the work’s origin to the reception it received from the audience during that period. Suspended between fantasy and reality, this mysterious tale is an elaborate philosophical fairytale about art and creation.
