Beethoven's First Symphony

Wow, we have missed hearing symphonies performed live at Orchestra Hall! Beethoven’s First Symphony is full of crisp melodies and quick turns of phrase, as well as musical “inside jokes.” Later in life Beethoven would revolutionize the symphonic form, but in this early work he was content to compose music of clean lines and undeniable beauty.

Listen to the conclusion of Beethoven's First Symphony from the Minnesota Orchestra's concert on Friday, November 20, 2020, conducted by William Eddins.
