Beethoven 5 – Pablo Heras-Casado, Mahler Chamber Orchestra
Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth , the “Symphony of Fate”, is one of the most popular works of classical music and marked a highlight of the Lucerne Festival 2013. Under the musical direction of Pablo Heras-Casado, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra – once founded by Claudio Abbado – performed the piece with such power and emotion that the audience gave it a standing ovation. The Spanish conductor is one of the most versatile and exciting conductors of his generation – a reputation he impressively proved he fits with this extraordinary concert.
