Beethoven - Symphony No. 5

Thursday, January 31, 2013

7:00 pm Verizon Hall

Maestro Frühbeck has graciously invited Philadelphia Orchestra Associate Conductor Cristian Macelaru to lead the first-half of this Beyond the Score®: Beethoven 5 presentation. Maestro Frühbeck will lead the complete performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 on the second half of the program.

Mr. Macelaru has led other Beyond the Score presentations in Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, and with other prominent orchestras. He has also been involved in the development of this premiere presentation, written and created by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's creative director, Gerard McBurney, and will bring a unique value to this wonderful presentation.

Few pieces in the history of the art of music have achieved the iconic power and reputation of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. In this awe-inspiringly concentrated composition, Beethoven not only invented a musical language of an unparalleled originality and overpowering force which still influences us today, but swept music out of the concert hall and into the wider world of human thought and experience. For more than 200 years, this symphony has shown us that music has the power to transform the way we live and think.
