Orchestra Révolutionnaire et Romantique/John Eliot Gardiner, Chamber Orchestra of Europe/Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra/Hans Pfitzner. Certainly the former are the more popular, praised, performed, and recorded. The first movement (Allegro vivace e con brio) is dominated by a buoyant opening theme, from which a related second theme emerges. watch the concert with commentary by Iván Fischer, Patron: Her Majesty the Queen of the Netherlands, Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Gustav Mahler, Johannes Brahms, Ludwig van Beethoven, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Igor Stravinsky, Gustav Mahler, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The piece is called only "Tempo di menuetto" - in the "time of a minuet" rather than a real courtly dance, suggesting that Beethoven is playing with instead of inhabiting the genre of the minuet.

Except it isn't an "intermezzo" in the sense of being "incidental" to the music's argument, because this piece embodies the central and paradoxical substance of this symphony: this short movement, in its rhythmic obsessions, like the repeated staccato chords in the woodwind, or the demi-semiquaver chirrups of the first theme, and the bass-line that answers it; in its extremes of dynamic, often putting a fortissimo right next to a pianissimo, its hocketing textures of interlocking orchestral lines, and its warped musical mechanisms, sounds more like a proto-Stravinskian orchestral scherzo than an early romantic orchestral movement.

In the summer of 1812 when Beethoven was obsessively working on this piece, he wrote the most infamous letter of his life, to his mysterious "Immortal Beloved". Beethoven is trying to make a symphony in which textural, rhythmic, orchestral and harmonic invention take the place of the expressive intensity; so much so, that the piece can do without a conventional slow movement.

Symphony No. 7. In the Eighth Symphony, there are holes that are left open after the final chord, questions that remain unanswered, loose ends that are deliberately not tied up.

Yet the amusing touches do not entirely disappear.

Staatskapelle Dresden/Colin Davis: don't let the luxuriance of the Staatskapelle sound deceive you – this is as insightful and illuminating performance as they come. 8 in F Major, Op. Beethoven referred to it as "my little Symphony in F," so as to distinguish it from the Seventh, as well as from the longer and more substantial Sixth Symphony, also in F major.

In this extended rondo, Beethoven experiments with dynamics, instrumentation, and concludes with a long, spirited coda. That's a gigantic leap of musical imagination and compositional technique, and it means that the rest of the symphony is similarly reoriented towards this goal, so that Beethoven – in this piece perhaps more relentlessly than in any other of his symphonies – is focused on specifically musical questions that create and obey their own logic rather than any pre-existing models or forms.

8 in F major Symphony in F major. The leading periodical of the time, the Leipzig "Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung" remarked that the audience was extremely interested in hearing Beethoven's latest symphony but that a single hearing was not enough: "The applause that it received was not accompanied by the enthusiasm which distinguishes a work that gives universal delight.

9 / Symphony No.

restatement of the first theme in the bassoons, cellos, and basses.

In 1812 he traveled to Bohemian spas. Of all of Beethoven’s symphonies, the Eighth is in any case the wittiest with amusing and novel ideas in each movement. That contrast catalyses a thrilling section of orchestral counterpoint, propelled by the tortuous transformation the cellos and basses visit on the main theme; Beethoven generates massive harmonic and rhythmic friction here which is at last released in a triple fff (forte-fortissimo!) He luxuriates in a different soundworld from the rest of the symphony – sensuous and lyrical rather than crystalline – and plays with your sense of pulse and metre.

Beethoven – Symphony No. For example, an absurdly humorous effect is created by Beethoven placing an elegant and graceful melody over the woodwinds’ ‘metronomic’ ticking; according to Iván Fischer, this melody could easily come straight from a Rossini opera.
