On a chilly December evening in 1808, Viennese huddled into the Theater an der Wien to hear new works of Beethoven. Four hours later, they had experienced the first public performances of the Fourth Piano Concerto, the Choral Fantasy, and the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies. MTT recreates this historic concert, an epic excursion into the genius of Beethoven.
