Notes & Reviews:

Though pictorial in many of its images and in the titles given to each movement, Beethoven stressed that the symphony was "more an expression of feelings than a painting." Here we explore the piece from the inside out, discovering just how this magnificent musical oak grows from the tiniest of acorns and encountering in the process one of the greatest magicians in musical history.
