“Fate knocking at the door.” Beethoven’s Fifth symphony opens with perhaps the four most famous notes in all of music. Revolutionary in its time, it is now perhaps the most well-known piece of music in history. Plus, Beethoven’s almost uncharacteristically joyful Eighth Symphony is an often-overlooked masterpiece containing just as much brilliance than his more well-known symphonies.
The Cleveland Orchestra in Miami was launched in January 2007 during the inaugural season of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. Franz Welser-Möst, one of today’s most distinguished conductors, has led The Cleveland Orchestra and helped it to be recognized as the “best American orchestra” by The New York Times.
