Beethoven's romantic style often clashed with Mozart's classical approach, leading to musician gang warfare that left scores of violinists bowed down in the streets, and Mozart's early death.

The Plymouth Philharmonic's 96th season commences as Steven Karidoyanes conducts the orchestra in a program that includes Beethoven's monumental Symphony no. 5. Eardrums are cajoled into vibrating by the world premiere of Matthew Sorensen's "Sonata in Sea", before the award-winning guest violinist, 14-year-old Younghyun Yi, performs her signature brand of violin ventriloquism to Henryk Wieniawski's gypsy-inspired Violin Concerto no. 2. The evening's culmination arrives with the incantation of the first monolithic notes of Beethoven's Symphony no. 5, regaling the audience with more ear candy than a sugarcoated pair of headphones.
