It is curious that so little should be known of the origin of such a masterpiece as Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto. No one can even give its date with certainty. Schindler, who knew Beethoven but is unreliable, says 1804 ; several writers say 1805 (without giving any authority) ; Thayer, greatest of Beethoven scholars, suggests the end of 1806. At any rate, it is certain that the Concerto dates from the period of Fidelio, the Violin Concerto, and the Fourth and Fifth Symphonies.
The whole work shows Beethoven in his most romantic mood.
The dialogue in the slow movement between the strings in unison-harsh and adamantine-and the piano, which replies with some of the loveliest phrases ever written for the instrument, suggested to Schumann the idea of Orpheus pleading with the powers of the underworld for his Eurydice.
Prometheus Beethoven 's Overture, ' Prometheus', is the prelude to a ballet, the music of which Beethoven composed for a famous ballet master and choreographer in Vienna named Vigano.
The scenario supplied to Beethoven was an innocuous version of the classic myth, for Prometheus is here represented not as stealing fire from the heavens, but as bringing his statues to life with the aid of dancing, drama, and music.
