The Triumphant Fifth
Saturday Symphony 1
The opening theme of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 is the most famous four notes in all of classical music. This exhilarating and triumphant work has justifiably wowed audiences for centuries. Contrasting this emotional frenzy are two intensely beautiful works. The Pavane's melody unfolds in undulating waves of splendor. Ibert's popular flute concerto is the ideal vehicle for SMF alumna and renowned soloist Jasmine Choi to express the work's energy and elegance.
Pavane, Op. 50
Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67
