FROM THE DAYS OF GOETHE
Melodies about own opera themes
Goethe considered Mozart’s operas as a valid solution to a “Deutsche Oper” (German opera). After initial scepticism, Goethe elevates Mozart to the status of an ideal, but he never really gets to know him personally.
Duo op. 57
Johann Ladislaus Dussek
From his relationship to Lous Ferdinand of Prussia whom he gave piano lessons, he had direct access to prominent personalities such as Goethe. They met regularly and estimated each other.
Liszt was an ardent admirer of Goethe..
Grand Sonata „Pathétique“
Ludwig van Beethoven
In 1812 Goethe made the acquaintance of Beethoven, not the mutually pleasant experience expected.
Grand Duo about themes from Rossinis opera „William Tell“
Theodore Labarre – Henri Herz
Schiller's famous play was shown for the first time under the artistic direction of Goethe at the Weimar Court Theatre.
