Guest appearance in Andermatt
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 – 1827)
Violin Concerto D major op. 61
Symphony No. 5 in C minor op. 67
The fascination of Beethoven’s Fifth still works today like it did on the first day. Everyone knows the opening motive of the symphony, perhaps the most famous motive ever in the history of European music, and the conclusion of the symphony with its breakthrough “per aspera ad astra” to the final victory leaves no one untouched.
