Beethoven Symphony No. 5

You can hear those famous first four notes in your head right now, can’t you? Dum dum dum dahhh. During World War II, those notes were converted to Morse code, signifying the letter “V” for Victory. Continue or start your own history with that famous opening and the incomparable music that follows with your NMPhil performing Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, the work that made its composer a superstar in the Vienna music scene of the early eighteen hundreds. And when the concert is in a church, why not play the organ? Maxine Thévenot serves as your guide for Handel’s B-flat Organ Concerto, one of six organ concerti composed by the Baroque genius.
