‘BEETHOVEN'S FIFTH'
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $20-$58.

It's back to Beethoven at the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. Last month, audiences heard Beethoven's fifth piano concerto. This weekend, they'll get a taste of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, perhaps the most recognized symphonic composition of all time. George Hanson, candidate three among five in the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's search for a new conductor, returns to the ASO as a finalist in the search for the second time. He was in the hunt back in 1992, the year David Itkin won the job. For more than a decade, he's served as music director of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Along with Beethoven, Hanson conducts the ASO in selections by two more German composers — Brahms' “Tragic Overture” and Schumann's Cello Concerto, which features guest cellist Joshua Roman. The program repeats on Sunday at 3 p.m. Same place, same price.
