Beethoven Symphony No. 7

Streaming: Saturday, February 19, at 8:00pm EST

Beethoven regarded his Seventh Symphony as one of his best works. Its first audience enthusiastically welcomed its rhythmic energy and spontaneity. They also instantly demanded an encore of the second movement, a march-like procession among his most recognizable works. British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's Symphonic Variations on an African Air showcases his vast sense of harmony, color, and scope of instrumentation in his largest purely orchestral work.
