About This Performance
The chronological distance makes it hard for us to hear how revolutionary Beethoven’s First Symphony was, but its rambunctious joy is still irresistible. It is not a youthful work – Beethoven was nearly 30 when he wrote it – but it is a radical statement of artistic identity, a symphonic calling card that honored the past while plunging boldly forward to a fresh, new style.
Nicholas McGegan, a paragon of style and energy, conducting Mozart and Beethoven.
Two of the LA Phil’s own virtuosos performing Mozart’s masterful fusion of symphony and concerto.
