- Stravinsky—Octet: Considered the beginning of the “neoclassical” period of Igor Stravinsky’s career, Octet employs an arresting combination of brass and woodwinds for an unearthly, almost disturbing sound grounded in classical aesthetics.
- Prokofiev—Violin Concerto No. 1: Completed in 1917, the year of the Russian Revolution, Prokofiev’s piece seems caught between eras. The outer movements evoke the lush melodies of the Romantic period, but more tumultuous moments in the middle are strikingly modernist.
- Beethoven—Symphony No. 3 “Eroica”: One of the grandest and most enduring classical works in history, the “Eroica” moves through the hopes, setbacks, and triumphs of a heroic campaign. Inspired by the French Revolution, Beethoven originally dedicated his ambitious yet melodically accessible epic to Napoleon. But when that hero of the people became a tyrant, the composer erased his name from the manuscript, declaring, “He’s just a rascal like all the others.”
