The next Jonathan Scott stream will be this Saturday at 2 PM Eastern. In honor of the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven's birth, he'll be performing Beethoven's entire Fifth Symphony in an arrangement for solo organ, on the organ* of the Basilica of St. Lambertus in Düsseldorf, Germany.

I've been eagerly anticipating this one since they mentioned in a tweet a while back that Jonathan was doing an arrangement of the whole symphony for this anniversary. There is an existing video of him performing just the first movement, which is of course the most famous part, but to me the fourth movement is really where it's at in that symphony and I'm really looking forward to hearing what he does with it.

* technically two organs
