Report Classical music suggestions? in Questions and Answers Posted May 7, 2004 The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra is a highly regarded group. Ah your killing me.... do you know Herbert Von Karajan? My friend turned me onto this composer. I ended up buying the DVD "Ludwig Van Beethoven Symphony No. 9 Choral" and love it. It is performed by the Berlin Philharmic Symphony. That's why I love "Ode to Joy" so much! Sadly that is about the extent of my classical knowledge.
