Beethoven's Fifth — Symphony in 60

Verdi’s vigorous overture to The Force of Destiny introduces the theme of fate knocking at the door, echoed in the most famous “four notes” ever composed, in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5.

Schumann's Four Day Symphony — Symphony in 60

Four days. That’s how long it took Robert Schumann to write his First Symphony. He spent his first 30 years living in the shadow of Beethoven’s symphonies writing pieces more modest in scale and then burst forth with an explosion of creative energy. Schumann didn’t need to write this piece to cement his place in history, but it certainly elevated it.

Copland and Ellington — Symphony in 60

The Symphony No. 2 by Brahms shines as one of the brightest stars in the symphonic universe.
