My sister and I attended a concert Saturday and heard Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. While it’s always a treat to hear good music, a piece so familiar and universally-loved is especially enjoyable.
I am by no means a critic, but Beethoven had such a gift for blending listenability with majesty.
Here’s a shot of our symphony’s home; it’s a beautiful venue. Someday, I will hear the Vienna Philharmonic at The Musikverein.
