Contredanses, Hess 102

composer
arranged from Nos 1, 12, 10, 5, 4, 9, 7, 2 & 8 of 12 Contredanses for small orchestra, WoO14

 
Beethoven composed a set of twelve Contradanses, WoO14, for orchestra between 1791 and 1801; nine appear in versions for solo piano. They seem innocuous, inconsequential works, until the ear detects in the seventh dance a seed for the Eroica Symphony.
