Leader, ALFRED CAVE
Conducted by H. FOSTER CLARK
Symphony No. 7, in A, Op. 92
Beethoven
1. Poco sostenuto, vivace; 2. Allegretto; 3. Presto, assai meno presto, presto, assai meno presto, presto; 4. Allegro con brio
Beethoven himself conducted the first performance of the seventh symphony on December 8, 1813. The concert was in aid of wounded Austrian soldiers. In the same programme was the ' Battle Symphony', in which was introduced Maelzel's Mechanical Trumpeter. Playing in the orchestra were many famous musicians and composers. Romberg, Spohr, Mayseder, and Dragonetti were amongst the strings, Hummel and Meyerbeer (who always came in after the beat) played the drums, Moscheles had the cymbals, and Salieri kept time and order in the percussion department. In Austria the symphony scored a great success. In Germany, however, opinions were against it; everybody agreed that the composer must have been in a state of drunkenness during its composition, and Weber considered Beethoven now ripe for the madhouse. London voted it vague, dissonant and too long. But all that was a very long time ago.
