2007: Beethoven's Fifth

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

The symphony resonates down the centuries in the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision project.

Sibelius’s Third Symphony takes shape amidst the swirling mists of the English Channel.

Beethoven’s Fifth thunders into life with four notes that absolutely everyone can recognise.

‘Thus fate knocks at the door!’, Beethoven is said
to have declared – but his best-known symphony is on a one-way race to glory, just as Sibelius’, completed a century later in 1907, ends with a vision of a whole world drenched in sunlight.

Edward Gardner conducts this latest illuminating pairing in our 2020 Vision project – and, looking back to 2007, accompanies soprano Sally Matthews in the late Henri Dutilleux’s beautiful meditation on transience and love.
