2020 is a celebration year – The 250th anniversary of the birth of the one who is considered the greatest symbol of Western music, Ludwig van Beethoven. His music mirrors the belief in the triumph of one’s spirit, by overlapping personal expression over the traditional way, breaking the foundations of Classicism and thus opening the way to Romanticism. ”The summary of his work is freedom, political freedom, one’s artistic freedom, his freedom of choice, belief and its individual freedom in all aspects of life”. Beethoven composed 398 master pieces, but symphonies would be the focus of his energy, becoming the paradigm of the genre. Symphony nr. 1, In C Major, Op. 21, is the first of the nine symphonies. It was composed in Vienna in 1799 and dedicated to his friend and also music lover Baron Van Swieten.
