Beethoven Symphony No. 5

Masterworks Series >

Berlioz, the most inventive orchestral composer of his age, poured all the thrill and romance of the Eternal City into his Roman Carnival Overture. Boisterous dance music and swooning love songs bring this raucous festival to life. Where Berlioz piece is boisterous, Prokofiev’s Fifth Piano Concerto is coy like a cat, wriggling out of every preconception and cliché as it charts an original path through the minefield of history. Finally, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is a wholly different creature, one with forward drive and a unyielding fidelity. This marvel of symphonic craft submits its bold message with utter frankness, and yet there are always new subtleties waiting to be discovered.

For all the virtuosic summits and grand melodic gestures, Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto is shockingly intimate, as if we are peering into the private diary of this vulnerable composer. The young Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili holds nothing back as she returns to Seattle to share her courageous interpretations to the deeply emotional music of Rachmaninov. In Scheherazade, Rimsky-Korsakov breathes sensuous new life into the storied pages of One Thousand and One Nights, proving just how vast the world of sound can be in the hands of such an inventive orchestrator.
