    Program

    The Septet is a work written by Beethoven in his youth, between 1799 and 1800, and ‎dedicated to the Empress Maria Theresa. It was performed in public for the first time ‎together with his Symphony No. 1 and Piano Concerto No. 2, where its great success ‎contributed to the young Ludwig’s fame. ‎
    The work follows the musical model established in the classical style of the divertimenti or ‎serenades written for the aristocracy’s musical entertainment. The minuet, the third of the ‎six movements of which the work is composed, is the best-known part of this work and one ‎of the most famous tunes in world classical music. ‎

    Wagner composed the Siegfried Idyll as a birthday present to Cosima, his second ‎wife, after the birth of their son Siegfried in 1869. The work was performed for the first time ‎on Christmas morning 1870 by an ensemble of thirteen performers on the stairs of the villa in ‎Tribschen (now part of Lucerne, Switzerland), where the couple lived. ‎

    The work’s original name was, Triebschen Idyll with Fidi's birdsong and the orange ‎sunrise, as symphonic birthday greeting. Presented to his Cosima by her Richard. “Fidi” ‎was Siegfried’s family nickname.‎
