On this day (May 7), 1824, at the Imperial Court Theater in Vienna (Austria), the premiere of the Ninth Symphony in D minor, by Ludwig van Beethoven, takes place.
Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn on December 16, 1770 and was a composer, conductor, pianist and piano teacher . He is considered one of the most important composers in the history of music and his legacy has decisively influenced the subsequent evolution of this art.
Beethoven's father was greatly impressed by the fact that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was giving concerts at the age of seven and wanted his son to follow in his footsteps. Therefore, he forced his son from an early age to learn and play music.
Beethoven is recognized as one of the greatest composers in history.
In his prolific musical career, Beethoven left an important legacy for posterity: nine symphonies, one opera, two masses, three cantatas, thirty-two piano sonatas, five piano concertos, a violin concerto, ....
On this day, at the Imperial Court Theater in Vienna (Austria), packed with a select audience, the premiere of the Ninth Symphony in D minor, by Ludwig van Beethoven, completely deaf and prevented from hearing anything that his genius is capable of creating. From the second movement, an audience amazed and enraptured by the richness and breadth of what they hear, bursts into applause. At the end of the concert, an emotional Beethoven will see in tears, all the attendees standing up who will not stop applauding him.
As a curiosity to comment that the origin of his last name does not come from the noblewoman, and there is a theory that says that Beethoven could probably have been derived from Beeth (which in Flemish means "beet") and Hoven, which is the plural of Hof ("farm"). Thus, "Beethoven" would come to mean "beet farms"
