Programme

There is always hope. Even in the most difficult, darkest, most desperate situations. Beethoven wrote his Fifth Symphony at the time when he had begun to go deaf, something that seemed to him – as a successful pianist and composer just over thirty years old – like the end of his life and musical career. The symphony depicts a long journey (Beethoven thought about it and wrote it over several years), in the course of which a person struggles with fate and does not allow himself to be broken. We can understand the symphony’s message to mean that fate is not unchangeable, and above all, it has no power over a person.
