In response to the Allied Victory in Europe and Japan in 1945, Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra performed Beethoven. Throughout the war, the opening motif of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony echoed V for Victory in Morse code, and as fighting finally ended, the Ninth Symphony’s hymn of brotherhood signaled hope for a peaceful future. Join us for an archival audio salon, featuring excerpts of Beethoven’s Fifth and Ninth symphonies, plus excerpts from the Armed Forces Radio Service broadcasts.
