Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra in E flat major, Hob.VIIe:1
Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, for baritone and orchestra
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
Symphony No. 7 in A major op. 92
Haydn's Trumpet Concerto, intended to promote a new key trumpet invented by trumpeter Anton Weidinger, had been missing for 129 years before becoming one of his most popular works after publication in 1931. At the heart of this Viennese program are the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, based on Mahler's own poems describing the amorous woes of a companion betrayed by his lady, condemning him to a life of roaming. Optimism prevails this evening, however, thanks to the irresistible energy in Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, which inspired Wagner to comment on its culmination of dance rhythms.
