An extremely slow process of gestation and absorption of the Germanic tradition – from George Frideric Handel’s baroque universe to Franz Schubert’s subtlety and always under Ludwig van Beethoven’s ubiquitous shadow – explains the more than twenty years taken by Johannes Brahms to produce his first symphony. His spectacular Symphony in C Minor is a bold statement of intention that radically broadens the limits of possibility in the range of sounds and feeds on a profound legacy. The symphony’s initial ascending chromatic motif has become one of the icons of romantic symphonic music in a work that includes references to the famous “Fate” motif in Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.
