The energy with which the 22-year-old Beethoven threw himself into Viennese music life was truly astounding. With his First Symphony, Beethoven clearly took over where Haydn and Mozart had left off, yet he spoke the inherited language of his elders in such an individual way that no contemporary could fail to notice the arrival of a major new voice on the musical scene.
Beethoven’s Third Symphony represents a quantum leap within the composer’s oeuvre as it does in the history of music in general. The sheer size of the work—almost twice the length of the average 18th-century symphony—was a novelty, to say nothing of what amounted to a true revolution in musical technique and, even more importantly, in musical expression.
