About the event:
Brahms's "tragic" overture is a typical concert overture, planned as an independent piece of music. He chose this term to express the turbulent, disturbing character of this piece - but without a programmatic background.
Schubert broke new ground with his eighth symphony. There is a lyrical mood in this piece, which has led many to regard it as the first "romantic" symphony. He lays the work to this character by going beyond a purely traditional orchestration and selecting the instruments to achieve a desired sound character - also an anticipation of the romance. Although not limited in time, Schubert completed the work in 1822 amidst sketches for the Scherzo.
Beethoven's "Eroica" is a monumental work that introduces Beethoven's middle creative period. Written 1803-1804, it is completely in the classical tradition, although expansion steps in terms of form, scope and harmony are already set. She is thus on the threshold of romance. Four-movement, about twice as long as traditional symphonies, the opus contains many references to Beethoven's earlier compositions. The thematic diversity of the second movement, which at the same time expresses a wide range of moods, from the funeral march to the happy major episodes, the broad elaboration of the themes, the intensity of the expression of personal sentiment, make Beethoven 's 3rd to a milestone in the Further development of the music.
