You know Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. You’ve heard it in films, advertisements,
parodied in Saturday morning cartoons and disco-ized in Saturday Night Fever.
The Fifth Symphony is a given, so much so that it blends into the background.
You know this piece, but how well? Of all the symphonies of the bewigged
classical "greats," why is this one still stuck in our heads over two
centuries later? To answer these questions, we’re giving Beethoven’s famous
symphony the same treatment we give to pop songs. And we’re doing so with the
help of an orchestra that’s been performing this piece since 1842, the New
York Philharmonic. In Movement I, we hear how the famous opening notes of the
symphony aren't just melody: they’re the main character in a drama that will
unfold over four movements. Featuring: Frank Huang, Violin Anthony McGill,
Clarinet Sherry Sylar, Oboe Recording of The New York Philharmonic performing
Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 conducted by Jaap van Zweden used by permission
from Decca Gold. New episodes of our four-part miniseries The 5th drop every
Tuesday and Friday starting September 8th. Learn more about your ad choices.
