In the aptly titled program Titans, the University of Maryland Symphony Orchestra will present two monumental works of the 19th century. Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, Op. 67, and Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, Op. 14, are guaranteed to make adrenaline rush and hearts race. Learn more about these larger-than-life composers and their music through these biographies, memoirs, letters, authoritative scores, and recordings:

   Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony No. 5: Beethoven's most ubiquitous work, the 5th symphony epitomizes the composer's signature heroic style

  Hector Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique: An Episode in the Life of an Artist: a fantastical journey through Berlioz's imagination, this piece was inspired by his obsession with Irish actress Harriet Smithson
