Features Symphony No. 7 and Symphony No. 5.
As the most securely established of all orchestral music, Beethoven's symphonies were often greeted by his contemporaries with as much amazement as respect. Many said that Beethoven must have been drunk to compose such absurd and untamed music. This film demonstrates how Beethoven brought an unprecedented power and dynamism to the orchestra, revealing how much he was affected by the idealism of the French Revolution and by the personal reality of his incurable deafness. 90 minutes color video.
