Symphonies 1 & 3 'Eroica' - Beethoven, cond. by Peter Maag CD

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Completed in 1804, Ludwig van Beethoven's Third Symphony "Eroica", marked a radical turning point, not just in the history of Beethoven's symphonic work, but of symphonic composition in general, leading to the conquest of a wholly new linguistic, ethical and expressive dimension.

Compared to his previous two symphonies, the proportions of the work are practically doubled ; its harmonic language finally accepts all the bold touches that Ludwig had tried out in his piano sonatas ; the technique of contrast (of theme, of sonority, of tonality) is heightened to the degree that it becomes the criterion for the construction of the entire work ; mixed elements of noble and folk origin (fanfares, funeral marches, folk dances, and scholarly counterpoint) flow together into a thematic flood never again equalled by the composer.
Symphony No.3 op.55 'Eroica', by Beethoven (49:41) :-
1) I Allegro con brio 2) II Marcia funebre: Adagio assai 3) III Scherzo: Allegro vivace 4) IV Finale: Allegro molto - Poco andante - Presto.

Ludwig van Beethoven's First Symphony was, from the outset, well received, upon its public debut, in Vienna on 2 April 1800. It can be said of this symphony, that it aims simply to be an excellent demonstration of Ludwig's compositional skills, rooted in knowledge of the mature fruits of Viennese classic symphonic music (represented first and foremost by Josef Haydn).
Symphony No.1 op.21, by Beethoven (24:05) :-
5) I Adagio molto - Allegro con brio 6) II Andante cantabile con moto 7) III Minuetto - Allegro molto e vivace 8) IV Finale : Adagio - Allegro molto e vivace.

The CD is in VG+ condition.
