L’été de Beethoven (1/4): Symphonies Nos. 2 & 4 – Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal, Yannick Nézet-Séguin - ICONIC MOMENTS ON STAGE
Beethoven compose sa deuxième symphonie alors qu'il se résigne : sa surdité est incurable. Mais ce qu'on y entend, c'est l'éclat, l'énergie d'un artiste qui sait qu'il a tout à donner, et désormais rien à perdre. Raffinée, la quatrième symphonie ne manque pas d'impressionner par son exceptionnelle démonstration d'inspiration et de maîtrise.

Beethoven composed Symphony No. 2 while coming to terms with his incurable deafness. But what comes through is a spark and energy from an artist who knew that he had everything to give, and nothing else to lose. Refined, Symphony No. 4 is nothing short of impressive thanks to its exceptional inspiration and mastery.

L’été de Beethoven (2/4): Symphonies Nos. 5 & 6 – Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal, Yannick Nézet-Séguin - ICONIC MOMENTS ON STAGE
Pa-pa-pa-pam : quatre notes qui symbolisent le style symphonique de Beethoven. La cinquième symphonie entraîne l'auditeur dans un torrent complexe mais limpide, comme une excitante montagne russe. Dans la sixième symphonie, intitulée Pastorale, on suit Beethoven, marcheur notoire, à la découverte de ruisseaux, fêtes de villages, orages et chants de bergers.

Da-da-da-dum: these are the four notes that symbolize Beethoven's symphonic style. Symphony No. 5 takes the listener on a symphonic roller coaster ride. In Symphony No. 6, also known as the "Pastoral," the listener joins Beethoven on one of his famous walks to discover streams, village festivals, storms and shepherds' songs.

L’été de Beethoven (3/4): Symphonies Nos. 7 & 8 – Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal, Yannick Nézet-Séguin - ICONIC MOMENTS ON STAGE
Imposante et majestueuse, la septième symphonie est faite de coups de tonnerre, de sombres passages, de mélodies folkloriques et d'éclats de lumière. Si l'on est parfois tenté de qualifier la huitième symphonie de légère, ses frictions harmoniques, son absence de mouvement lent et son volumineux dernier mouvement en font plutôt une œuvre expérimentale.

Imposing and majestic, Symphony No. 7 has thunderbolts, dark passages, folk melodies and rays of light. While it can be tempting to describe Symphony No. 8 as lightweight, its harmonic friction, lack of a slow movement and hefty last movement make it more of an experimental work.

L’été de Beethoven (4/4): Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3 – Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal, Yannick Nézet-Séguin - ICONIC MOMENTS ON STAGE
La première symphonie de Beethoven s'inscrit dans la tradition classique, mais avec des contrastes et une certaine insolence qui laissent présager la révolution à venir. Deux accords, fiers et braves, brisent le silence pour donner le ton de la grandiose troisième symphonie « Eroica », à la fois cathartique et mobilisatrice.

Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 is firmly rooted in the classical tradition, but features contrasts and a hint of insolence that forecasts what's to come. Two proud and brave chords break the silence and set the tone for Beethoven's great Symphony No. 3, "Eroica," at once cathartic and revolutionary.
