At the Turn of Centuries

Beethoven didn’t want that his The fifth (and last finished) piano concert had a name, especially “Emperor”. Nevertheless, later this work was assigned “moniker”, which, unfortunately simplify the content laid in its music.
Beethoven distances himself from the model of concert as an entertaining, virtuoso genre, and makes a bold step to something more philosophical and more esthetically interesting.
Schubert is often associated with his art songs. And at the same time Symphony No. 9 with about an hour duration, is the proof of his talent universality. Schubert was 26 years younger contemporary of
Beethoven, but lived just one year and seven months longer. However, Symphony No. 9 is influenced by older colleague (one topic of the final suggests “Ode to Joy”), lyric nature of Schubert comes out here. Due to this lightness and melody beauty are typical features of the symphony, the premiere of which, unfortunately, Schubert didn’t see.
