Jordan, Rett / Beethoven 1/3

Horizontal Tabs

Info
The choice of works in the third part of the Beethoven symphony cycle has a positively classical effect. The starting shot is fired with the Symphony No. 1, in which Beethoven lost no time in making his call for revolutionary renewal. The “Eroica”, originally dedicated to Napoleon, is followed by the wild, dance-like Symphony No. 3 – recently voted the most important symphony in musical history in a survey of leading conductors by BBC Music Magazine. For Jordan himself, the work’s treatment of the “Prometheus” theme makes it a key Beethoven work: “Beethoven isn’t interested in man as hero; what fascinates him is the failure of the hero. That’s what makes him so compelling and contemporary for us.”
