Beethoven Symphony No. 4

Clarinettist and conductor Martin Fröst is one of the greatest musicians of our time. Here, he leads the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4.

“A pure and beautiful flower that preserves the scent of the brightest days,” wrote Nobel Award-winner Romain Rolland on Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4. Robert Schumann described it as a slender Greek maiden between two Nordic giants. It is a symphony in which Beethoven presents his bright and life-affirming side.

This recording is from the show Retrotopia, in which Martin Fröst created new expressions beyond the conventions of the concert, but also conducted classical masterpieces including Beethoven’s fourth, heard here.
