    Philips manufactured the first CD on August 17, 1982. The technology was developed in conjunction with Sony and the amount of music it could store extended from a planned 60 minutes to 74 so that one CD could accommodate a complete performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

    The song is the symphony No. 9 from Beethoven.

    Standard CDs are 12 cm in diameter. In the initial days of CD manufacturing, 12 cm diameter was chosen to accommodate Wilhelm Furtwängler’s 1951 performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony (audio in 2) at the Bayreuth Festival.

    CD’s space extended to fit Beethoven’s symphony.

    Sony vice-president Norio Ohga suggested extending the capacity of a CD to 74 minutes to accommodate Wilhelm Furtwängler’s 1951 performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony at the Bayreuth Festival. This is said to be reason why CDs are as big as they are, now.


  7. Sony vice-president Norio Ohga suggested extending the capacity of the cd to 74 minutes to accommodate Wilhelm Furtwängler’s 1951 performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony at the Bayreuth Festival, so that he could listen to it while playing golf

    The original capacity of a CD was 1 hour of audio. But eventually, it was extended to 74 mins to accommodate Beethoven’s 9th symphony.


  9. The extension of the playing time from 60 min to 74 minutes to accomodate this symphony(probably by beethoven )which made the CD into a 120 mm disc

    The diameter of the CD was increased to 12cms to accommodate Wilhelm Furtwängler’s performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony which lasts about 74 mins..Th original CD was made to have 60 mins of playing time..

    Sony suggested increasing the capacity of a CD to 74 min to accommodate Wilhelm Furtwangler’s 1951 performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony (audio clip in the question).


  12. beethoven’s ninth symphony influenced the compact disk.

    philips planned a 11.5 cm one and sony a 10 cm one, finally it was decided that whichever could hold beethoven’s 9th symphony completely.

    Compact Disc – Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony – old story about how the storage capacity was determined by the length of a particular recording of the Ninth.

    Philips had originally (more than 25 yrs ago.) had planned for a CD (image 1) with a 11.5cm diameter. But this had to be changed when Sony insisted that a disc must hold all of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony. (musical piece in 2)

    The longest recording of the symphony in record label Polygram’s archive was 74 minutes and so the CD size was increased to 12cm diameter to accommodate the extra data.


  15. RajT

    The duration of 1 cd rom.. beethoven’s 9th symphony.. 74 minutes.. also the default sample music with any windows OS ;)


  16. anurag

    The length of the CD was increased to 74 min. (the diameter was also increased to accommodate the increased data size) to accommodate Beethoven’s 9th symphony.

    Beethoven’s 9th symphony. it is about 74 mins long (the longest version of it).

    It is rumored that CD dimensions are based on this symphony.

    A CD diameter of 12 centimeters is required for this playing time.


  18. reason a CD is 74 min..to accomodate Beethoven’s 9th.


  19. sayantan bose

    the music is beethoven’s symphony no.9.basically when the first cd was made it has only the capacity space to store that synphony no.9
