Browse: Beethoven - Symphony No. 8 in F major, Op. 93

Composer: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827)Composed: 1812First performed: 27th February 1814, Redoutensaal, ViennaDedicated to: Prince Karl von Lichnowsky

The Symphony No. 8 in F major, Op. 93 is a symphony in four movements composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1812. Beethoven fondly referred to it as "my little Symphony in F", distinguishing it from his Sixth Symphony, a longer work also in F.

The Eighth Symphony is generally light-hearted, though not lightweight, and in many places cheerfully loud, with many accented notes. Various passages in the symphony are heard by some listeners to be musical jokes. As with various other Beethoven works such as the Opus 27 piano sonatas and the later Ninth Symphony, the symphony deviates from Classical tradition in making the last movement the weightiest of the four.
