The Pupil & His Tutor: Beethoven & Haydn
Acclaimed as both the father of the symphony and the father of the string quartet, Haydn famously tutored a young Beethoven. However, Beethoven claimed, I never learned anything from Haydn. Still, Beethoven’s most famous compositions draw on the symphonic form Papa Haydn is credited with creating. We invite you to join us for a pair of symphonies from both the pupil and tutorBeethoven’s Symphony No. 7 and Haydn’s Symphony No. 1and judge for yourself where the influence lies.
