Fate Now Conquers

Scottish Fantasy
David Kim, violin

Symphony No. 5 in C Minor


Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony stands apart as one of the most recognizable works ever written, and a live performance of the Fifth never fails to inspire. From the fateful opening hammer strokes to its rapturous finale, the music comes alive with an intensity that is impossible to ignore. Don’t miss this ultimate tale of triumph over tragedy — a musical celebration of humankind’s will to survive and overcome.

Inspired by one of Beethoven’s journal entries, Carlos Simon shares his own take on fate and its power over our lives in a brief musical musing.

Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster David Kim takes the stage for Scottish Fantasy, the virtuosic showpiece brimming with misty moods, tender melodies, and toe-tapping folk rhythms of Scotland.
