Om musiken

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827): Leonore Overtyr #3
Leonore Overture #3 opens Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, which was called Leonore, when first staged in 1805, at a time when Napoleon’s troops were overrunning Vienna. This overture (one of four Beethoven wrote for the opera) opens with a solemn introduction, which is fitting, it has been said, given the themes of personal freedom that the opera explores. The allegro, in C major, begins softly, but then develops into a hymn to liberty.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827): Pianokonsert #5, ‘Kejsaren’
The ‘Emperor Concerto’ was Beethoven’s last completed piano concerto, written between 1809 and 1811 in Vienna. It was, however, an archduke rather than an emperor who first performed it – Beethovens patron and pupil, Archduke Rudolf.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897): Symfony #3 (1883)
Freedom is a theme in this symphony, as in the overture that opens this concert. But it was a different sort of freedom than Beethoven had in mind. At the time of the Third Symphony, Brahms was a fifty-year-old bachelor who declared himself to be Frei aber froh, “Free but happy”.
