Beethoven: the symphony and concerto genres

DESCRIPTION

Beethoven's work is usually divided into three styles. The two pieces of this concert belong to the second of these styles, characterized by epic music of resounding strength and deep moments of contemplation. Nevertheless, the Eighth Symphony and the Emperor Concerto stand in drastic contrast to each other. While the first, in the midst of the storms of other scores, is a breath of grace, ingenuity, serenity, and good humor, paying tribute to Haydn's symphonies, the second conveys all the greatness, brilliance and martial temper of Beethoven's middle period, in a work reverenced by today's music lovers, and which, in the 19th century, became prototypical for romantic composers delving into the concerto genre.
