Ludwig van Beethoven, portrait

Beethoven cycle (IV)

We continue our Beethoven cycle with another pair of symphonies which highlight different facets of the greatest composer of German classicism. The light-hearted and optimistic Eighth is followed by the monumental and explosive Fifth; one of the best-loved works in the classical repertoire, it expresses Man’s clash with Fate and the agonizing journey to the Light.
