Billy Joel called it ‘the biggest hit of all time’. Everyone knows the first four notes of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, and that sensational opening is just the start of one of the most thrilling adventures in all of western music. We couldn’t celebrate Beethoven’s anniversary year without it, but Vasily Petrenko is starting the concert the way Beethoven would have wanted – with something bold and new by Liverpool’s own Kenneth Hesketh, specially created for pianist Clare Hammond.
