At the dawn of the 19th century, a new mood swept Europe – a mood of wonder, of fantasy and unbridled emotion. They called it Romanticism, and Beethoven was in the vanguard: creating music (like his Fourth Symphony) that tested the old ways to breaking point, and (in his Fifth Symphony) stepping into an untamed and  sometimes terrifying new world. But he wasn’t alone. Forgotten masterpieces by Eybler and Méhul – the first composer to be called “Romantic” - frame the Fourth Symphony and pave the way for the Fifth: music (wrote one contemporary) “that
awakens the eternal longing that is the essence of the Romantic”.
