Beethoven’s 8th Symphony
Here’s a Beethoven symphony you might never have heard before.
Sometimes called the “Little Symphony,” this is the David between the two goliaths that are the seventh and ninth symphonies. Contrary to the two the styles used in the seventh and ninth, which is obviously Romantic, this one is very Classical in approach (and the Minuet makes a comeback!)
