.... The premiere of Symphony No. 9 was performed in Vienna, 7 May 1824. Perhaps this excerpt best describes how the audience received the piece:

"His turning around, and the sudden conviction thereby forced on everybody that he had not so before because he could not hear what was going on, acted like an electric shock on all present, and a volcanic explosion of sympathy and admiration."

English writer George Grove after meeting with Karoline Ungher,one of the soloists at the premiere.
