PianoEspoo: Peace

Ritarikatu 1, 00170 Helsinki
House of Nobility (Ritarihuone)

Beethoven was possibly at his most revolutionary in making music a herald of a new social order.

Beethoven was possibly at his most revolutionary in making music a herald of a new social order. Following in his wake, Schumann and Mendelssohn came to regard themselves as more than mere musicians, and their passionate idealism is still omnipresent in their works. 

Schönberg viewed the world around him through its ongoing crises. His Ode to Napoleon strips the words by Lord Byron – scoffing at Bonaparte – of their romantic bluster. His passionate work composed during the Second World War exudes an air of disappointment at Europe’s abysmal failure.
