This series presents some of the great epochal changes in music history. Our journey through time has taken us from Florence, the birthplace of Baroque music and opera, to the cradle of symphony music in Mannheim. The first concert of spring explored Vienna, where Bethoven, the great pioneer of the Romantic period, made his music. Our last stop took us across the Atlantic to New Orleans, where the black population launched the remarkable rise of one of the 20th century's most significant g...enres, jazz. In the next concert of our series retracing the great paradigm shifts in music history, we visit Vienna, the creative home of Beethoven, the great harbinger of Romantic music.
The quotation marks in the title of this concert refer to the fact that, although in many respects Beethoven perfectly conforms to later evolved concepts of a Romantic composer and numerous elements foreshadowing Romanticism are discernible in his music, he nevertheless clearly perceived himself as one of the masters of the Classical Viennese School. There is no doubt, however, that his influence on Romantic music and the Romantic concept of art was vast, so that, in retrospect, we can safely say that the Viennese genius lived and made music on the borderline between two periods, embodying in one person the ideals of the Classical and Romantic periods.
