Beethoven – Symphony No. 5
  • Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 is one of the most frequently played symphonies of all time, and with good reason. The symphony and its four-note opening motif are known worldwide, appearing frequently in popular culture.
  • To fully appreciate this amazing piece of music, you have to hear Beethoven’s Fifth in person, performed by a top-notch orchestra — and this will be your chance.
  • History in the Making: The Nashville Symphony will record Christopher Rouse’s Symphony No. 5. Rouse is one of America’s leading composers, and this live recording promises to be a truly unique experience. 
  • A phenomenally talented performer, Canadian-born violinist James Ehnes returns to solo on Britten’s Violin Concerto No. 1. 

Christopher Rouse’s Symphony No. 5 was commissioned by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, with generous support of the Norma and Don Stone Fund for New Music; the Nashville Symphony; and the Aspen Music Festival and School.
