Welcome to Nine Symphonies

Home of beautiful minimalist music prints and more ...

Nine Symphonies Art/Design project started by Michael J. Stewart that aims to visualise various aspect of classical music in eye catching , minimalist giclée prints.
 Starting with Beethoven’s 9 Symphonies other prints in the series will also include Mahler and Bruckner. Timings for each movement were collected from 33 complete cycles of the symphonies starting with Felix Weingartner in 1930 through to Daniel Barenboim in 2012. From these timings an average for each movement was visualised using a pie chart.
