Ta-ta-ta-taa ... fate knocks on the door in Beethoven's Fifth. They are perhaps the most famous notes in all of music history. They were incorporated into disco hits and launched into space aboard Voyager as a human salute to extraterrestrial intelligence. In World War II, this fate rhythm (Morse code short, short, short, long) symbolized the V of victory.

Experience the power of Beethoven's most famous live in the concert hall with chief conductor Duncan Ward. Beforehand, enjoy the Cello Concerto Saint-Seans composed in 1902 for a world-renowned cellist from Maastricht. 'I believe that music makes the heart grow fonder, makes you feel everything more intensely,' said Camille Thomas. This cello concerto full of nostalgia and rhythmic drive is right up the French cellist's alley. This concert will make you tremble in all your ranks.
