Every revolution has its roots.

The young Beethoven set out “to receive the spirit of Mozart from the hands of Haydn”, and in this first instalment of our exploration of Beethoven’s musical roots, the sparky, irreverent First Symphony and the mighty, taboo-breaking ‘Eroica’ stand alongside pieces by Beethoven’s teacher Haydn, by his hero Mozart, and by his more popular contemporary Anton Eberl. Expect cosmic harmonies, tragic emotion, and a couple of surprisingly familiar tunes – proof that even a master as original as Beethoven has his ancestors and influences, and that he’s no less powerful for it.

The Representation of Chaos – from ‘The Creation’

Beethoven
