Few would probably dispute that Beethoven’s 5th is the world’s most famous symphony.

Most people are familiar with the initial theme of fate, but there is so much more to discover: a rocking second movement and a grand finale. The symphony is also one of the first where the chirping piccolo flute makes its entrance – listen to the rising figures in the finale where the flute rises to spherical heights. There is no better way to celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday.
