Los Angeles Philharmonic / Music News & Info: Classical

Happy Birthday, Ludwig van Beethoven

The great German composer was born on this date in 1770.  In his honor, please enjoy the iconic first movement from his Fifth Symphony, performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by the incomparable Carlo Maria Giulini.

If you typically associate Maestro Giulini with interpretations that lean towards the broad and spacious, you may be in for a (pleasant) surprise.
