Beethoven's 250th Birthday: Triple Concerto with Eroica Trio and Symphony 3
Beethoven’s 250th Birthday: Triple Concerto with Eroica Trio and Symphony 3
New West Symphony celebrates the Ludwig whose music ignites a fire of emotion, today as ever before. The lovely and fiercely talented Eroica Trio performs Beethoven’s “Triple Concerto” for cello, piano, and violin with the orchestra. Plus you’ll hear the fiery, iconic Symphony No. 3, known as the “Eroica” Symphony. Even though Beethoven wrote the Triple Concerto and his Third Symphony practically at the same time, it’s almost impossible to find two works by the same composer more opposite in spirit, style, scope and impact. By Beethoven’s time, concertos for multiple instruments were out of style, far more common in the bygone Baroque era, and the Triple Concerto was the only piece that he wrote for more than one soloist. Whereas the Eroica Symphony burns with drama and fury, the Triple Concerto is far less tense, overflowing with light lovely melodies and playful dialogue between the trio instruments. Beethoven originally dedicated his Third Symphony to Napoleon Bonaparte, but when the conqueror declared himself Emperor of France, Beethoven tore up the symphony’s title page in a fit of rage. With this groundbreaking symphony, he divided audiences for years and made transitions between such varied styles and moods seem natural, even obvious. As a composer, Beethoven straddled the line between the elegant Classical style he mastered and the bold Romanticism he pioneered.
