Three Gs and an E flat, declaimed Ta-ta-ta-taaa!, is perhaps the best known phrase in all of classical music. The notes form the opening motif of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, a work that has enjoyed enduring popularity since it's first performance in 1808. This album presents various interpretations the symphony's opening movement has received from a number of conductors, including Otto Klemperer (1885-1973), Michael Gielen (1927-2019), Stanislaw Skrowaczewski (1923-2017) and Adám Fischer (b. 1949), giving the listener convenient comparisons and historic hindsight. Additionally, Robert Trevino conducts the Malmö Symphony Orchestra in a recording of the complete work, while Konstantin Scherbakov complements the collection with a performance of Liszt's transcription of the work for solo piano.
