With Beethoven, four notes are enough to start a revolution. ‘This is how Fate knocks at the door!’ he said, and everyone knows the electrifying opening of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. But if that’s all you know, you’re in for the musical adventure of a lifetime – a headlong ride through tragedy, tranquility and blazing triumph. Thomas Søndergård conducts, Edgaras Montvidas sings Britten’s dreamlike songs, and we start with the haunting Lyric for Strings by George Walker: a true American original.
