Video on demand: Beethoven's Symphony no. 2 in D major

GSOplayRecorded at Gothenburg Concert Hall: Stora Salen, Gothenburg, Sweden

Many grains and sprouts for Beethoven’s upcoming symphonies can be traced to the second symphony: here Beethoven became Beethoven and no one else. “In the second symphony there are materials for 20 works”, he said later and he was right. It is full of ideas and inventions, like a child or a teenager who can’t stop talking about their thoughts and impressions, and how fantastic is it not to take part of that?

Watch this masterpiece performed by the Gothenburg Symphony led by Santtu-Matias Rouvali.

Recorded in October 2018.
