BPO Beethoven 5 

Today we bring you the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra's performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 from February, 2019.

In his pre-concert talk, Maestro Zander explains "Everybody knows Beethoven's Fifth...[It opens with] the most famous four notes in all of music...What you're going to hear tonight is not what you think is Beethoven's Fifth...Beethoven was shaking his fist at the world." We invite you to settle into a comfortable chair and enjoy this memorable performance of a masterwork! 

We send our warmest wishes to you and your loved ones this weekend. Happy listening!
