Beethoven Symphony no. 5
Shostakovich Symphony no. 5

Michael Sanderling

Beethoven’s fifth symphony, from the most famous opening in music, builds through its four movements from dramatic struggle to a blazing, triumphant conclusion.

Arguments continue to rage over the true meaning of Shostakovich’s most performed and recorded symphony, but it remains a work of extraordinary emotional and musical tension, poised on a knife edge between survival and disaster.

Pre-concert Talk, 6.30pm The Forge
