Beethoven
Overture: Prometheus
7.38 app. Piano Concerto No. 2, in B flat
8.9 app. Symphony No. 3, in E flat
(Eroica)
From the Royal Albert Hall, London
Tickets may be obtained from the Royal Albert Hall or usual agents
Although Beethoven's Piano Concerto in B flat was publ shed as No. 2, it was actually written in 1795, two years before that known as No. 1. It is a work of youthful charm,. clear in design, with a captivating Rondo as finale.
Nothing so massive, and so profound in its significance, had appeared in instrumental music before Beethoven's * Eroica.' Written ' to celebrate the memory of a great man,' it was at first intended to be' a musical portrait of Napoleon, who in the early years of the nineteenth century was regarded by many people as the champion of freedom. The name ' Buonaparte ' was already on the outside page of the symphony when, in 1804, he assumed the title of Emperor. Beethoven's response to the news was to tear the page in half. ' After all, then,' be, said, ' he is nothing but an ordinary mortal. He will trample all the rights of men underfoot, to indulge his ambition, and become a greater tyrant than anyone.' The Symphony, which inevitably reveals Beethoven's own character, is a tremendous musical expression of the heroic spirit of man. Harold Rutland
