Description
Possibly the most recognizable musical phrase throughout the entire world opens the beginning of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. This piece is an emotionally charged journey dealing with the struggles of fate which coincides with the composer’s public recognition of his hearing loss. This piece grows organically from the musical seeds planted in the first few measures of each section.
