Musicians, tune fans and song critics have in most cases thought of Beethoven's brazenly political song as an aberration; at most sensible, it's basically infamous, at worst, it truly is denigrated and overlooked. In Political Beethoven Nicholas Mathew returns to the musical and social contexts of the composer's political song all through his profession - from the early marches and anti-French conflict songs of the 1790s to the grand orchestral and choral works for the Congress of Vienna - to argue that this marginalized practical artwork has a lot to educate us in regards to the lofty Beethovenian sounds that got here to outline severe track within the 19th century. Beethoven's much-maligned political compositions, Mathew exhibits, lead us into the elaborate political and aesthetic contexts that formed all of his oeuvre, therefore revealing the stylistic, ideological and psycho-social mechanisms that gave Beethoven's song this type of strong voice - a voice liable to repeated political appropriation, even to the current day.
