Tone Poem Tuesday

There’s always something fascinating about obscure Beethoven. You can’t help listening to it, trying to find hints of the staggering genius that would craft some of the greatest works of art in human history, and not just musical art. You can hear Beethoven’s style in this piece, and even though it is fairly obscure (coming from a longer work with choral movements, where only the overture is much heard today), you can still hear the great master within it.

Here is the Overture to King Stephen by Ludwig van Beethoven.
