Beethoven’s 5th

What would happen if there was a performance of Ludwig van Beethoven’s immortal Fifth Symphony (or as it’s formally known, Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op 67), and nobody paid any attention? That’s what happened December 22, 1808, in the unheated Theater an der Wien, when Beethoven gave a self-produced concert introducing several of his new works. Of course, attention will be paid when the Houston Symphony, under maestro John Storgårds, plays what has come to be Beethoven’s most inspiring and famous orchestral work.
