This week’s installation of the Robert Mann Chamber Music Series explores two pieces by Beethoven, whose 250th birthday we celebrate throughout the season. The Septet was Beethoven’s most popular composition during his lifetime. Both of the spirited, jocular works on this program were penned at a time when the composer was “a young giant exulting in his strength and his success, and youthful confidence gave him a buoyancy that was both attractive and infectious” (biographer Peter Latham).
