Stunning. Epic. Unforgettable. Beethoven’s Seventh is one of the most popular symphonies of all time, and its influence marches on – its sombre second movement anchored the climactic moment of the 2010 Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech. Hear Symphony Nova Scotia perform this breathtaking masterpiece alongside Schubert’s delightful Fantasy and Prokofiev’s colourful and demanding Concerto no. 2, featuring the virtuoso violin chops of our own Renaud Lapierre.

Watch this incredible climactic scene from The King’s Speech, featuring Beethoven’s Seventh.
