Beethoven Piano Concerto 5 'Emperor' on Period Instruments (1/4)
Beethoven Piano Concerto 5 'Emperor' on Period Instruments (1/4) The Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major, op. 73 by Ludwig van Beethoven, popularly known as the "Emperor Concerto", was his last piano concerto. It was written between 1809 and 1811 in Vienna, and was dedicated to Archduke Rudolf, Beethoven's patron and pupil. The first performance took place on November 28, 1811, at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. In 1812, Carl Czerny, his student, gave the Vienna debut of this work. The concerto is scored for solo piano, two test flutes, two oboes, two clarinets in b-flat (Clarinet I playing Clarinet in A in movement 2), two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, timpani in E-flat and B-flat, and strings. The "Emperor" is divided into a standard three movements: I. Allegro [ midi ] (E flat major) II. Adagio un poco mosso [ midi ] (B major) III. Rondo: Allegro ma non troppo [ midi ] (E flat major) As with Beethoven's other final concerti, this work has a relatively long first movement. (At twenty-five minutes, the Violin Concerto has the longest; Piano Concerto Nos. 4 and 5 each have opening movements about twenty minutes long.)
BeethovenNow! In this video, New Music Pianist Seda Röder improvises the first-ever electro-acoustic cadenza for a classical concerto! Röder, who specializes on bringing contemporary music to new audiences, says that "the public at Beethoven's time would expect the soloist to improvise in the cadenzas. I wanted to do the same, but in a style that is my own and entirely modern." To turn this vision into reality, Seda worked together with Mexican composer Edgar Barroso who provided her with an electro-acoustic framework that she could use for her improvisations. When Röder was approached by Harvard conductor Hanjay Wang with the suggestion to perform with the orchestra of the Harvard-Radcliffe Chinese Students Association, the unusual idea finally came to life!

Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 "Choral" - IV. Finale: "Ode to Joy"
Beethoven - Symphony No. 9 "Choral" - IV. Finale: "Ode to Joy" The Symphony No. 9 in D minor: Choral, Op. 125, is the final complete symphony of Ludwig van Beethoven. Completed in 1824, the symphony is one of the best known works of the Western classical repertoire, and has been adapted for use as the European Anthem. It is considered by critics to be one of Beethoven's masterpieces] and one of the greatest musical compositions ever written. Beethoven started the work in 1818 and finished early in 1824. The symphony was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony (thus making it a choral symphony). The words are sung during the final movement by four vocal soloists and a chorus. They were taken from the "Ode to Joy", a poem written by Friedrich Schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803, with additions made by the composer.

Beethoven - Symphony No. 8 in F Major - Mov. 4/4
Beethoven - Symphony No. 8 in F Major - Mov. 4/4 LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN (1770-1827) Symphony for two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets in B flat, 2 bassoons, 2 horns in F and B flat (bass), 2 trumpets in F, timpani and strings in F major Op. 93 No. 8 4. Allegro Vivace Performed by Tafelmusik Directed by Bruno Weil *Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93 is a symphony in four movements composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1812. Beethoven fondly referred to it as "my little Symphony in F", distinguishing it from his Sixth Symphony, a longer work also in F. The Eighth Symphony is generally light-hearted, though not lightweight, and in many places is cheerfully loud, with many accented notes. Various passages in the symphony are heard by some listeners to be musical jokes. As with various other Beethoven works such as the Opus 27 piano sonatas, the symphony deviates from Classical tradition in making the last movement the weightiest of the four. The work was begun in the summer of 1812, immediately after the completion of the Seventh Symphony. At the time Beethoven was 41 years old. As Antony Hopkins has noted, the cheerful mood of the work betrays nothing of the grossly unpleasant events that were taking place in Beethoven's life at the time, which involved his interference in his brother Johann's love life. The work took Beethoven only four months to complete. Unusually, he attached no dedication to the completed work. The premiere took place on February 27, 1814, at a concert at which the mighty Seventh Symphony (which had been ...

Beethoven - Symphony 3 "Eroica" (Guitar Duo)
Beethoven - Symphony 3 "Eroica" (Guitar Duo) Transcription/Arrangement for 2 Guitars by Ed Chang using Synthfont. Visuals from Steven Malinowski's MAM Player Original sequencing of Liszt transcription: W. Pepperdine 2000 A project of The Daily Beethoven: =================== Boilerplate: These tracks were created for my own use to better understand Beethoven's classical works. As a guitarist, I "hear" guitar better than piano, so these helped me to follow the different melodic and harmonic turns that Beethoven used in his frankly still-revolutionary compositions. These are generated from "MIDI" sequences and triggered soundfonts (samples) so there's a little bit of an auditory leap of faith necessary. Have some fun and don't expect to find Furtwangler or Barenboim here.... Usage of this material is permitted as long as credit is attributed.
