Beethoven: Symphony No. 5
Stephen Johnson and the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Grant Llewellyn deconstruct Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.
The Fifth is probably one of the best known works in the classical repertoire, but how did Beethoven arrive at the finished piece we know today?
This programme also includes one of four weekly 'Codas' from conductor and music pyschologist Christopher Gayford, exploring our psychological responses to music.
