Notes & Reviews:

Do you know why there was a wild brawl at the premiere of Stravinsky's "Sacre du printemps"? Why did Schubert never intend to finish his famous "Unfinished" Symphony in h-Minor. What is the fate behind Beethoven's "Symphony of Fate"? And what "surprise" did Haydn have in mind with his symphony of the same name? Expect to be enlightened with these and many other exciting answers to intriguing questions about some of the most famous works of classical music by the documentary series "Masters of Classical Music". Renowned experts take a closer, always entertaining, but somewhat distinct, look at 20 of the most distinguished symphonic oeuvres, performed by some of the best artists and orchestras in the world. A "must have" for all fans of classical music, beginners and explorers alike.
