Beethoven's Ninth Symphony (known as, "Ode To Joy") is one of the most famous pieces of classical music ever. It has even featured in movies such as Clockwork Orange and Die Hard. Beethoven wrote it just a few years before his death, when he was profoundly deaf. At its premiere, when the audience applauded, one of the soloists turned Beethoven around to face the crowd as he couldn't hear. They threw handkerchiefs and their hands in the air so that Beethoven could at least see their jubilant reaction.
