Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Jessica Griffin
Four famous notes herald one of the most dramatic journeys in all orchestral music: Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, a dramatic masterpiece with a tempestuous spirit that culminates in a rousing triumphant finale. There’s a tempest in the “Pastoral” Symphony too, a sudden thunderstorm that interrupts a gathering of country folk and their rowdy dancing, but there’s also bucolic pleasures like the gentle flow of a brook, sweet bird song, and the peaceful song of a shepherd.
