An Early Evening Stroll

tue 6 jul 2021 19:00 

Today’s walk is about Joseph Wölfl(1773-1812), a scandalously neglected contemporary of Beethoven. He celebrated triumphs in Paris. He dedicated his 1st Symphony to his colleague Cherubini. How does his music sound and what about the rest of his musical Parisian surroundings? Méhul and Gossec were both favourites of Napoleon and wrote beautiful music that you never hear. Wölfl’s 3rd piano concerto served as a calling card for his next destination: London.
