Beethoven Day 2021
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5Steven Mercurio - Prague
Steven Mercurio conducts the Czech National Symphony Orchestra from the historic heart of Prague in Beethoven’s totemic fifth symphony. From its first movement with its emblematic rhythmic motif - depicting fate knocking at the door - to its triumphant finale, the work took Beethoven four years to complete. This concert also includes the overture to Fidelio.
