ANDREW MANZE – Conductor

Da da da dum..! You will likely recognise the striking four notes that erupt from silence to begin Beethoven’s iconic Symphony No 5. Can you imagine the audience of its 1808 premiere performance hearing it for the first time? Conductor Andrew Manze unleashes these hammer-blow accents, before leading us through the single most famous musical journey from expressive minor-key darkness to astounding major-key light.
The Fifth is performed alongside two of Beethoven’s least-played yet significant symphonies. Both the Second and Fourth have a joyful and humorous air - perhaps expressing the vitality that provided comfort to a composer confronted with deteriorating hearing.
