200 years of Beethoven’s 7th Symphony

Today, December 8th of 2013, we conmemorate the 200 years of the premier of Beethoven’s 7th symphony.

Beethoven’s Seventh symphony was premiered with Beethoven himself conducting in Vienna on 8 December 1813.

I absolutely love all Beethoven’s symphonies but after the 9th symphony, the 7th is my second favorite and in third place Beethoven’s 3rd (Eroica).

Richard Wagner, one of Beethoven’s biggest admirers, called it the “apotheosis of the dance”.

Celebrating the 200 years of the premier of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony!!!
