In this programme, the music covers much of Beethoven’s adult life and represents the rate of change that was occurring in the musical world. As well as the maturing of Ludwig’s style from impressionable young man still clinging to the influence of his Viennese forebears Haydn, Mozart and Salieri, the development in the manufacture of musical instruments was affecting listener’s expectations. The concert closes with Beethoven’s growing obsession for the fugue in his later period. His ability to write a work of such complexity confirms his genius.
