Beethoven's First Symphony is often termed a 'farewell to the eighteenth century.' Though still classically rooted, it bears the composer's spirited and heroic signature. Paired with the Second Piano Concerto, the symphony bridges into the nineteenth century, where Beethoven fully embraced his romantic musical language. His music is often labeled 'heroic,' inspired by historical and mythological figures of heroism. The Prometheus Overture, depicting the demi-god who stole fire from the gods for humanity, exemplifies this with a triumphant celebration. Experience Beethoven thrice with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra and conductor Philippe Herreweghe, an authority in this genre. Dutch pianist Hannes Minnaar, acclaimed for his complete recording of Beethoven's concertos, joins for an exceptional rendition of Beethoven at his finest.
