Beethoven completed his first symphony in 1800 in Vienna, where he had come eight years earlier, a young man of twenty-two, to study with Haydn. He was iriready well known as a pianist and had played his first piano concerto in public, but he had h therto written no purely orchestral work of any importance. The Symphony was givert at a public concert, together with the first or second piano concerto and the Septet for wind and strings, on April 2, 1800. Deryck Cooke
