About This Performance
As Beethoven overthrew the old models of large-scale public music and performance, he also radically recast chamber music. He wrote his sunny Serenade for a new publisher to sell to the domestic market and he premiered his Septet on the same concert as his First Symphony. Both pieces enjoyed popular success, the Septet infuriatingly so for the composer, who felt that it overshadowed his more serious works.
The most famous Septet ever written, a sparkling wonder composed in 1799.
The unusual combination of a flute and violin duo, supported by viola, in a cheerful Serenade - plus the pre-concert wine reception!
