I know everyone has seen this movie, but if you haven’t heard Hughes talk about the movie then you are sorely missing out. There is so much depth and beauty in the movie and in this scene in particular that it’s staggering. Wonderful film and director.
Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op.67, Movement I: Allegro con brio (1804-1808) - Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Performed by the Berlin Philharmonic. Conducted by Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989).
I know this work is familiar, but it and its composer are legendary for a reason. This particular performance shows Karajan’s almost frightening ability to draw monstrous amounts of sound from the orchestra at his disposal.
