Beethoven’s 5th Symphony: The most triumphal music ever written.

Music for the EU. Luckily it will be still available should we leave the EU: But why should we?

A spectacular performance this evening by the RSNO (Royal Scottish National Orchestra) in the Usher Hall Edinburgh.

Conducted by Sharon Roffman, Lead Violin. The orchestra all stood to play (except Cellos and Double Basses) just like the Scottish Ensemble.

A rapturous reception. Just read what the Scotsman hade to say not only about the 5th Symphony but the whole concert including Mozart’s Flute and Harp Concerto with Katherine Bryant on flute and Pippa Tunnell of harp; both regular players in the RSNO.

A nice touch, she led her team off the stage and back again (as a play).Review of Concert
