Beethoven Overture, The Creatures of Prometheus
Beethoven Violin Concerto
Schubert Symphony No. 5
Schubert was just 19 and, according to his diary, “infatuated with Mozart”, when he composed his Fifth symphony. It’s an astonishing achievement for such a young man, brimming with youthful sunshine and memorable melodies. We’ve paired it with Beethoven’s glorious Violin Concerto, in the hands of one of its all-time great interpreters, Thomas Zehetmair.
