Sir John Eliot Gardiner by Chris Christodoulou
The opening motif of the Symphony No. 5 is certainly one of the most famous in all of music. It is a dramatic curtain-raiser for an intense symphony that storms with unbridled power, ultimately lifting the listener to one of the most triumphant finales ever composed. While Symphony No. 4 sits in the chronology between two titanic symphonies, the lighter orchestration and gentler tone put it closer to works by Haydn and Mozart. Its propulsive third movement, however, puts it firmly in the Beethoven canon.

Part of: International Festival of Orchestras II, Sir John Eliot Gardiner Perspectives, and Beethoven Celebration
