Life is a complex proposition, asking of us and taking from us, showing plainly and obscuring mostly, leading us and leaving us to our own devices to figure out our way and to make sense of our life. In the maze of experiences that we have through the passage of time, we can be left to wonder and question whether life can yield more positive outcomes for the efforts we expend, to ask if life can lift us to higher levels of joy, to puzzle over whether we can truly realize the most meaningful ...

Which means that we get to decide how to honor this symphony today, whether that means taking a break from Beethoven to commission new works from underrepresented composers, bringing new audiences into the fold by staging concerts in communities outside o…
 
Before Beethoven’s time, classical music culture looked and sounded quite different. When Mozart premiered his Symphony 31 in the late 1700s, it was standard for audiences to clap, cheer, and yell “da capo!” (Italian for “from the beginning!”) in the middle of a performance. After Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony debuted in the early 1800s, these norms c…
