Johannes Brahms · Symphony No. 1 in C minor op. 68
The romantic chivalry of Weber’s opera Euryanthe is no longer asked for on the stage today. But it lives on in the sweeping overture, in which historically authentic references to the theme of the plot play an important role. There is a “chivalrous” episode as well as things mysterious and jubilant. Dvořák’s Cello Concerto is the last major work that he composed while in America, in 1894/95. The unmistakable “Bohemian” intonation of the most important cello concerto of its genre in the late 19th century is striking. No other work occupied Brahms as long as his first symphony, and Beethoven’s overwhelming example repeatedly deterred him from approaching the demanding genre. Thus, a period of 14 years elapsed between first drafts and the final completion of his dramatic and monumental Symphony no. 1 in 1876.
