Liszt: Piano Concerto No. 2
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5
Elfriede Andrée’s First Symphony, from which the Intermezzo is extracted, is likely the earliest symphony written by a Swedish woman. One continuous piece, Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto diverged from typical concertos of its day that were separated into distinct movements. The four notes that open Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony (the “fate motive”) are perhaps music history’s most iconic motif.
