Ludwig van Beethoven, Joseph Haydn, Felix Mendelssohn, and Dmitri Shostakovich are titans of music, but, as Bill considers their first symphonic efforts, he reveals the adversities and ordeals of each composer attempting to develop their individual musical voices. Maiden voyages into the deep of music, including Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, and Symphony No. 1 by Sergei Prokofiev and more first efforts.
