Ludwig van Beethoven – Fantasy for Piano, Chorus, and Orchestra, Op. 80 “Choral Fantasy”

Creatures of Prometheus isLudwig van Beethoven’s only full-length ballet, and it shows his lighter side. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s longest and final symphony, “Jupiter,” was said to be an inspiration to Beethoven with its five simultaneous melodies. Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy” is considered a forerunner to his Ninth Symphony and includes piano and vocal solos as well as chorus. Inspired by “Choral Fantasy,” Composer-in-Residence David Ludwig draws on its themes in his world-premiere composition Songs from the Bleeding Pines, which provides a commentary on today’s environmental crisis.
