Did You Know?
- Beethoven wrote just one opera, with at least five overtures, of which only four remain. Lenore, which would later be renamed Fidelio received a new overture each time it was revived during Beethoven’s lifetime.
- In March, the ACO will perform Lenore Overture, No. 3 considered to have given away too much of the plot, it which was ultimately replaced as the overture to the opera.
- Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla was the father of the “Nuevo tango” (new tango).
- Aconcagna, his most ambitious work for the bandoneon, his favorite instrument, was composed in 1979.
- The work is scored for an orchestra of percussion, harp, piano and strings. There are no woodwinds or brass in Piazzolla’s setting.
- Aconcagna finds Piazzolla in top form, creating a new kind of classical concerto with roots in populist dance blended with the swirling crosscurrents of contemporary classicism.
- Despite its numbering, the symphony is his final symphony. The Symphony No. 4 in D minor is a revised version of an earlier work.
- The inspiration for the Rhenish symphony was a trip down the Rhine Schumann and his wife Clara took in 1850.
- The Rhenish Symphony marks Schumann at the apex of his creative powers. This musical journey through the Rhineland may be the composer’s finest orchestral work.
