In May – about a week before the country fessed up to that €23 billion hole in its accounts – Spain’s Banco Sabadell celebrated its 130th anniversary with a surprise performance of Beethoven’s Ode To Joy, featuring an orchestral flashmob of the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the choirs of Lieder and Friends of l’Opera and the Choral Belles Arts, conducted by Josef Vila Casañas.

Stirring stuff.

One can only hope the current EU deal plays out as well.
