Summary
From the very start, the four-note "fate" motif of Ludwig van Beethoven's Fifth Symphony casts a spell on listeners.

Beethoven expert Wulf Konold illustrates its variations on piano and explains other features of the work, including references to French Revolution ideals and tensions between fate and self determination. Claudio Abbado conducts the Berlin Philharmonic.
