Hoboe Play Beethoven: 5th Symphony, Movements 2, 4 & 1
Hoboe, an American rock band featuring amplified oboe will present an unprecedented performance of rock renditions of three movements from Beethoven's fifth symphony.

In celebration of his 241st birthday this year, Hoboe will perform movements 2, 4 and 1 of the symphony (in that order), after a set of original material that will also include new works being debuted by the outfit.

This is the first known attempt of any artists digging in at a deeper, more meaningful level to perform Beethoven in a pop context beyond simply rearranging the traditionally popular and instantly recognizable theme of the first movement.

The first movement has been depicted in a wide variety of styles including heavy metal, funk, disco, and electronica. However none of these versions have ever attempted to play the movement the entire way through, instead simply remixing the introductory exposition theme and repeating it in different contexts.

Furthermore, there are no known alternative-genre versions of any of the other three movements of Beethoven's most popular symphony.

Hoboe will enter unchartered waters, not only in an attempt to capture the brilliance and magnitude of the first movement by playing it entirely from start to finish--complete with exposition, development and recapitulation, but also by presenting their own performance of the beautiful and majestic melodic themes of the second and fourth movements (also from start to finish).

With only four instruments--oboe, guitar, bass and drumkit, and a whole lot of amplification, Hoboe will attempt to recapture and modernize the volume and power of the world famous Beethoven orchestral favorite.
