Beethoven, Symphony 1/1, Christian Thielemann, Vienna Philharmonic O
Beethoven, Symphony 1/1, Christian Thielemann, Vienna Philharmonic O 01 - Adagio molto, Allegro con brio (Beethoven, Symphony 1/1, C major, Op 21, Christian Thielemann, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra) 1. Opening [:41] 2. Adagio Molto - Allegro Con Brio [9:53] Symphony No. 1 (Written: 1800; Vienna, Austria) is the most Mozartian of the set as the only Beethoven Symphony to include a classical minuet movement. Christian Thielemann, a native Berliner, has spent most of his outstanding musical career in Berlin, Munich, and now Dresden. The partnership of Thielemann and the Philharmoniker was a Beethoven match made in heaven when these videos were shot in 2008 and 2009. The sum total of these performances more than meets this expectation, in every aspect. Viewing these symphonies in their chronology yields great insights into Beethoven's development as a composer. The concert was recorded in HD at the Goldener Saal der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna.

Beethoven, Symphony 7/2 - A major Op 92, Christian Thielemann, Vienn
Beethoven, Symphony 7/2 - A major Op 92, Christian Thielemann, Vienn 02 Allegreto, Beethoven, Symphony 7/2 - A major Op 92, Christian Thielemann, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92, in 1811, was the seventh of his nine symphonies. He worked on it while staying in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice in the hope of improving his health. It was completed in 1812, and was dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries. At its debut, Beethoven was noted as remarking that it was one of his best works. The second movement Allegretto was the most popular movement and had to be encored. The instant popularity of the Allegretto resulted in its frequent performance separate from the complete symphony. The work was premiered in Vienna on 8 December 1813 at a charity concert for soldiers wounded in the Battle of Hanau, with Beethoven himself conducting and double featured with the patriotic Wellington's Victory. The orchestra was led by Beethoven's friend, Ignaz Schuppanzigh, and included some of the finest musicians of the day: violinist Louis Spohr. Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Antonio Salieri, Anton Romberg, and the Italian double bass virtuoso, Domenico Dragonetti, whom Beethoven himself described as playing "with great fire and expressive power". It is also said that the Italian guitar virtuoso Mauro Giuliani played cello at the premiere. The piece was very well received, and the second movement, the allegretto, had to be encored immediately. Spohr made particular mention of Beethoven's antics on ...

Beethoven Piano Concert No 4 - part 1 - Wilhelm Backhaus - Kar
Beethoven Piano Concert No 4 - part 1 - Wilhelm Backhaus - Kar GOOD QUALITY WILHELM BACKHAUS & KARL BÖHM Concerto for Piano no 4 in G major, Op. 58 by Ludwig van Beethoven Performer: Wilhelm Backhaus (Piano) Conductor: Karl Böhm Orchestra/Ensemble: Vienna Symphony Orchestra Date of Recording: 3-9/4/1967 Venue: Studio Rosenhügel, Vienna Period: Classical Written: 1806; Vienna, Austria * Backhaus was regarded by many as the greatest interpreter of Beethoven. * Backhaus and Böhm were friends of nearly forty years' standing and collaborated in concertos by both these composers on many occasions. * The present performance was among their last. Two years later, Backhaus died, aged 85, after a career of some seventy years. * Both men were technicians of exceptional brilliance. * Böhm's command of orchestral ensemble, sonority, textural clarity and subtlety of rhythm was legendary. His musicianship was impeccable, his authority unquestioned. * A marvellous testament to great Brahms conducting! Perhaps this DVD will act as a reminder of the power of the medium. These are two fine performances by two great artists - and here we have the opportunity to study their most intimate movements in performance. Piano students will surely glean volumes from Backhaus's sovereign technique; conducting students may find less to admire in Böhm's rather staid manner and gestures, but nevertheless can observe a major podium figure of the past at close quarters. The set-up in the studio is typical for the period, with the conductor rather isolated from his ...
Beethoven - Fur Elise (HQ)
Beethoven - Fur Elise (HQ) "Für Elise" (German for "For Elise") is the popular name of the bagatelle in A minor WoO 59, marked poco moto, a piece of music for solo piano by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), dated 27 April 1810. Beethoven scholars are not entirely certain who "Elise" was. The most reasonable theory is that Beethoven originally titled his work "Für Therese", Therese being Therese Malfatti von Rohrenbach zu Dezza (1792-1851), whom Beethoven intended to marry in 1810 and was also one of his students. However, she declined Beethoven's proposal. In 1816 Therese, who was the daughter of the Viennese merchant Jacob Malfatti von Rohrenbach (1769-1829), married the Austrian nobleman and state official Wilhelm von Droßdik (1771-1859)[1] When the work was published in 1865, the discoverer of the piece, Ludwig Nohl, mistranscribed the illegible title as "Für Elise". The autograph is lost.[2] Another theory is that 'Elise' was used to describe a sweetheart during Beethoven's time. If this is true, then the piece is dedicated to sweethearts in general, with no specific person in mind. However this theory is unlikely because it doesn't fit well with Beethoven's composing and dedication history.
