He was a rebel; she was a maverick.
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), responding to both his early hearing loss and the surrounding political unrest of his times, changed the course of music. He broadened its emotional range by creating new types of tonality, harmony and texture; adding unexpected accents and syncopation; and establishing what we know as the modern orchestra.
Symphony No 2 in D major, Op. 36 (1801)
Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61 (1806)
Guest Artist: Igor Pikayzen, violin.
Louise Farrenc (1804-1875), an extraordinary French composer and world-class concert pianist, railed against the societal restraints placed upon her simply because she was a woman. She was the only female professor appointed by the Paris Conservatory during the 19th century and was an early champion of equal pay, which she won.
Overture in Eb, Op. 24 (1834)
