Tippett Symphony No. 3[edit]

Would an experienced editor like to incorporate the fact below from the Tippett 3 article into the Influences section of this article, alongside Dvorak and Bartok? It's quite a glaring omission. Also, Andriessen similarly quotes Beethoven 9 in his 'De negen symfonieën van Beethoven' (1970) for ice cream bell and orchestra - if that can be cited, that should be in here too.

"The symphony is notable for its use of blues and its direct quotation of the opening of the finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. The work criticises the ecstatic and utopian understanding of the brotherhood of man as expressed in the Ode to Joy and instead stresses man's capacity for both good and evil.[1] The work is consequently characterised by contrasting and conflicting parts, its overall design being "one massive antithesis".[2]

Add audio player?[edit]

Is there any reason why this article does not have an embedded audio file for each of the four movements? I've noticed that the articles on all Beethoven's other symphonies except the 7th have full recordings. In order to standardize, shouldn't they be added to this one as well? I am inexperienced with such things, so can someone who knows how please add audio players to this article? NorthernLatitudes (talk) 22:31, 14 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
