Josef Gabriel Rheinberger: Wallenstein

Josef Gabriel Rheinberger

Wallenstein

Sinfonisches Tongemälde

op. 10

Description

Rheinberger’s first Symphony was among the most successful and frequently performed new symphonies following its premiere in 1866. This “symphonic tone painting” in four movements (Prelude, Thekla, Wallenstein’s Camp, Wallenstein’s Death), which is based on Schiller’s trilogy of dramas, was Rheinberger’s only excursion into the realm of programme music. The influence of Beethoven is unmistakable, the lively 3rd movement (scherzo/trio) depicts with much humour the life of a soldier, and the sermon portrays of the zealous capuchin monk.
