The first notes of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 are so familiar to so many people that they've almost become a parody to themselves. You can almost imagine people thinking: Is it fate knocking on the door or should I go to the disco? As part of his final year as their Music Director, Paavo Järvi gives a dynamite performance of it with the CSO.
