Former Principal Conductor and Music Director of the London Philharmonic Orchestra Klaus Tennstedt conducts live performances of Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony and his Overture to Coriolan.
Revelatory at its premiere, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony continues to seize the listener’s attention from its unmistakeable first four notes, and attention never slips through the masterful work that follows. The Overture Beethoven wrote for a new play based on the Coriolanus story dramatically contrasts the arrogant soldier rebelling against Rome with the pleas of his mother to be spared.
