National Symphony Orchestra: Beethoven at 250: Symphonies Nos. 2 & 5
7:00 PM, 8:00 PM
Famed for its iconic four-note opening, Beethovens Fifth Symphony is one of the most well-known and influential pieces of music ever composed. Imaginative, violent, and wide-ranging, the colossal crowd-pleaser immerses the audience in Beethovens state of mind with dramatic tension that builds to a passionate climax. Complementing the program are two works deeply connected to the composers rebellious ideals: his Second Symphony and third Leonore Overture.
