Beethoven's Ninth - Symphony for the World follows the traces of the Ninth on four continents and looks at current interpretations. Filmmaker Christian Berger meets people whose lives are closely linked to Beethoven’s Ninth. “We were shooting in eight countries on four continents. Our protagonists spoke ten different languages, yet Beethoven was always sung in German. That was a big challenge,” says the director.​​​​​​​

The protagonists of the seven film stories include (among others) Chinese composer and Oscar winner Tan Dun, British composer Gabriel Prokofiev, Greek star conductor Teodor Currentzis and Paul Whittaker and his work with hearing-impaired children with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
