BBC Philharmonic: Beethoven – Symphony No.7

Beethoven Cantata on the Death of Emperor Joseph II (39’)
Beethoven Leonore Prohaska – Trauermarsch (6’)
Beethoven Symphony No.7 (38’)

Beethoven wrote his Seventh Symphony under clouds of ill health and romantic failure, but you wouldn’t guess from the music’s glowing brilliance. As counterweights, two works marking lost lives, including a funeral march inspired by a female soldier who, disguised as a man, joined the army and died fighting Napoleon.
