Episode 5 - The March of a King A Thousand Pictures ... of Classical Music

    • Music Commentary

‘Symphony no. 7’ by Beethoven is considered to be a masterpiece. And wonderfully, its solemn march was chosen as the music for the climactic scene of ‘The King’s Speech’! It communicates perseverance and determination to overcome adversity. In this episode I share insights into the piece, I continue our journey to uncover how music works by answering the question ‘What Is Harmony?’, and I discuss the instruments of the String section in an orchestra.


This episode features the 2nd movement from ‘Symphony no. 7’ by the composer Ludwig van Beethoven. I recommend the recording by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Christian Thielemann.
