Beethoven: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 / Forck

Album cover art for upc 3149020940013
Label: harmonia mundi
Catalog: HMM902420
Format: CD

Beethoven's first two contributions to the symphonic genre reveal the bubbling creativity of the thirty-year-old composer. With the renewal of the genre, he was determined to push even further than the recent reference of Mozart's Jupiter Symphony. Cleverly paired with two symphonies by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, another iconoclast, the music world changed forever with the very first chord of Beethoven's Symphony No. 1. Relive this decisive moment in the company of the Akademie für Alte Musik, under the guidance of their concertmaster Bernhard Forck.
