This is followed by Mozart’s dramatic Fifth Violin Concerto; often referred to as the 'Turkish', the wild, frenzied Allegro in the final movement emulates a Turkish style with melodic leaps, pounding rhythms and percussive strings.
Closing the concert is one of the most instantly recognisable pieces of classical music; Beethoven’s Symphony No.5. Opening with four imposing notes, this Fate Motif that dominates the symphony epitomises all that was brilliant about the classical era and still dominates concert halls today.
