I disagree, Brahms used Goethes Poetry in several ocassions, in so important works like Alt Rapsodie, Rinaldo or Gesang der Parzen. Its true, that Brahms said that Goethe work was so perfect, that it did not need any music.

Ludwig van Beethoven wrote Beethoven's 1st Symphony, also it is the first of nine symphonies that he wrote. Full title is - Symphony No. 1 in C major, op. 21 "op" is short for opus. Opus means work, so it is his 21st work.

Beethoven's Symphony in d minor, opus 125 is called the choral, because of his use of soloists and chorus in the fourth movement set to Schiller's Ode to Joy. Beethoven was the first composer to include vocalists in a symphony. Others have done so since then, notably Gustav Mahler.

they where so important to first people because they supplied food clothes and milk


Brahms loved to do good deeds in secret, such as sending money to struggling musicians. He was one of the few composers to be appreciated while he was still alive. Long walks inspired the outdoor-loving Brahms. As a thoughtful man, Brahms once, while at an inn, walked around in his stockings so that he wouldn't dirty his boots which a servant would then have to clean. He didn't stress over being original because he thought that the creation was just as important as the perfecter (or worker) of the creation. After his mother's death, one of Brahms friends found him "getting it all out." He was crying while playing the piano, playing specifically Goldberg Variations.


it is important because it is the first


It depends on the musician's idea on the symphony.


While there are a number of "Fifth Symphonies," by far the most well known is Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. A symphony is a themed collection of pieces of music, composers didn't "name" them in the pop music sense but gave them titles according to the key in which they are written i.e. "Symphony in C", however once you have written more than one symphony in the same key it becomes necessary to number them, so a "fifth symphony" is the fifth symphony written by a composer.


Between 1798 and 1802, so about 22-26. His first and second symphonies were premiered in 1800-1802.


She was First Lady and that makes her important.


Every symphony that was ever composed was written by the person who composed it. So the answer to your question is 'every famous male composer who wrote at least one symphony'. How you define 'famous' is up to you.


There is no such piece as Intermezzo 2. Brahms wrote many intermezzi and they are all identified by their opus numbers. Eg op 118 no 1 or 119 no 4 so you will have to be more specific.


Hahaha! It's a symphony! (So there are just instruments, no voices!) This made me giggle :)


AnswerJosef Haydn is generally considered the Father of the Symphony, so this may help lead you to the answer.- While this is true there is no such thing as 'the' first symphony. The form has evolved almost constantly, and the 4 movements (sonata-allegro, slow, minuet, finale) of Haydn are very different to the one movement or even 15 movements symohonies of modern composers.In the renessaince and Baroque times the word sympony and overture were used interchangeable and the symphony was often the first prelude in an opera. Bachs sons, Carl Phillip and Johann Christian both wrote many symphonies though these were in 3 movement.Joseph Haydn solidified the form and concept of the symphony as a four movement piece described above. Eventually writing 104 symphonies himself.However by the time of Beethovens Late 9th he had revolutionised it again and during the romantic era it was considered the most important form for musical expression. Here the symphony grew in size, emotional depth and often strayed from conventional Structure.

Saul was the first king of Israel so that it was important.


Some of Beethoven's symphonic innovations included:The development and expansion of the symphonic coda, e.g. in his 8th symphony, the coda made up almost half of the final movement.Beethoven was the first to use a single motif as a unifying element throughout an entire symphony. This was most evident in the 5th symphony in which the same four-note motif was repeated, in varying forms, throughout the entire work.The expansion of the symphony orchestra. Beethoven took instrumentation to its absolute range of capabilities. Musicians were extended beyond their usual, comfortable boundaries in what they were expected to perform. Beehoven was also the first to use trombone in symphonic form, doing so in his 5th symphony.Symphonies were no longer just entertaining pieces - they became outpourings of emotion and passion.Beethoven was the first to score for vocals within a previously purely orchestral genre, e.g. his 9th symphony was the first to use choral parts.No longer were the movements of a symphony necessarily distinct parts; Beethoven was the first to smoothly transition and progress between movements.
