$11.50 - $21.75*
$23 - $43.50
Mercury continues its Beethoven symphony cycle with two contrasting symphonies by the composer. First, there is the underappreciated Symphony No. 4, which so enamored the composer Hector Berlioz that he declared its second movement to have been the work of an angel, refusing to believe it was created by a human. Then there is Beethoven's giant, his Symphony No. 5. One of the most famous works in all of classical music, Symphony No. 5's opening motif is instantly recognizable by almost anyone who hears it. This famous piece of music has been heard in film and television and appeared frequently throughout popular culture, even showing up in disco and rock and roll songs. But that's only the beginning! Hear the entirety of this masterful piece of music in this unforgettable season finale performance.
