BeethovenDVD - 1998
Until the end of the eighteenth century, a musician in Europe was a skilled craftsman, basically a servant of the aristocracy. Ludwig van Beethoven saw himself as an artist and creator. He ended the Classical Era of European music (1750-1800) and began a new era where musicians were free to express themselves. The French Revolution brought about a new social order which greatly inspired him - he was the personification of the Revolution in music.
