Feel the power of Beethoven’s “heroic” symphony, celebrating “the memory of a great man”—from its two bolts-out-of-the-blue opening chords to the brilliant finale—as H+H, led by Václav Luks, breathes exhilarating life into this majestic masterpiece. We begin with power of another kind: a storm at sea, as the symphony’s nickname promises. The composer (a friend of Mozart) raises thunderous effects of all kinds, reserving the mightiest for the last movement, with the bass drum front and center.
