Poet and Composer: Operatic Insights of an Insider
Sarah Snider. As we already know from our creation history of the Ode to Joy, at the end of July, , in the im "Teutsche Merkur", Schiller's first Letters on Don Carlos were published. Those of you who read German might enjoy reading it via this link:. The publication of Schiller's historical work and the opening of an unpaid professorship for History at the University of Jena offered Goethe an opportunity to address his Promemoria of December 9, , to the "Geheime Konsilium", in agreement with the Dukes of Weimar and Meiningen, in which he recommended Schiller for this post [Goethe und seine Zeit: ].
As peacefully and generally harmonically as the year came to a close in Weimar, as eventful would the year be for all of Europe. From mid-July, on, Europe looked with shocked interest at France: on July 14, the storm of the Bastille started the French Revolution.
After his return from Italy, Goethe also realized that his patron, Duke Carl August, had succumbed to his passion for the military and had become a Prussian General in On February 22, , Schiller married his fiance, Charlotte von Lengefeld. However, Goethe could not stay in Weimar, for long. From September 3 - 10, in the company of Carl August, Goethe visited Tarnowitz, "far from loved ones"; on September 4, in the "Friedrichsgrube", Goethe saw the first continental steam engine. However, what brings us closer to Egmont is his January 17th appointment as Director of the newly-established Court Theatre in Weimar.
Already on March 31, , Egmont was performed. After this, nothing is heard of any Weimar Egmont activities, for several years. While, in the France of the year , the form of government of a constitutional mo narchy was tried [with which Schiller would still have agreed], Schiller embarked on his studies of Kant.
In addition to his new role as theatre director, Goethe embarked on his work on chromatics respectively his 'theory of colors'. Having returned from France, burnt his diary that contained notes on the events in France. As is known from history, in September , the French were victorious over the Austrian and Prussian troops. In December , Duke Carl August refused Goethe's request to be relieved from his duties as theatre director, so that he had to continue with them.
From March 25 to April 25, , the famous actor Iffland guest-performed in Weimar. August Wilhelm Iffland. This brings us back to Egmont - r elated issues. With respect to this, Goethe wrote in his Annalen:. Since Egmont would subsequently not be performed for almost a decade, with respect to the remainder of Schiller's life, we can refer to our time table s in our Creation history to the Ode to Joy.
Nun brannt' ich vor Begierde unsere Unterhaltung, dem Tode zum Trotz, fortzusetzen, seine Gedanken, Ansichten und Absichten bis ins einzelne zu bewahren. Sein Verlust schien mir ersetzt, indem ich sein Dasein fortsetzte. Nun war mir Schiller eigentlich erst entrissen, sein Umgang erst versagt.
Our personal meetings were interrupted: we exchanged notes. Once I had braced myself, I looked around for a great activity; my first thought was to finish his Demetrius. Now, I was burning to continue our discourse, in spite of his death, to preserve his thoughts and intentions to the last detail. His loss appeared to be diminished, somewhat, to me, by continuing his existence. Howerver, obstacles were in the way of my carrying these plans out; with some care and providence, they might have been removed.
When we follow Goethe's Annalen and his entry to the year , we learn that Egmont might have been performed in Weimar in the winter of With this possible Weimar performance in the winter of of Egmont, we are leaving the time period of the creation of the work to its publication to several performances of it that are very relevant in this context, in which Beethoven had not yet made any contribution to this tragedy. Now that we have left the Weimar environment of Goethe's tragedy behind, we might ask ourselves how the drama had been received and what people's opinions about it where at the time at which Beethoven would first be connected to it.
Goethe's play, originally written in , was by now a classic drama of political liberation" [Lockwood: ]. Let us follow Beethoven's traces during the year , in order to approach the time in which he received the commission to write music to Egmont. Let us quote a passage from our creation history to Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto, so that we can become re-acquainted with his situation during the period of spring and summer, The French occupation, from the Austrian capitulation to the July 12th armistice, brought about a worsening of Vienna's economic situation due to the financial drain on it in form of inflationary price hikes, scarcity of food, and due to the loans imposed on home owners that were, of course, again reflected in rents.
May 31, , saw the death of Joseph Haydn and we do not know as to whether Beethoven attended his funeral and how his death affected him. Places of leisure such as the Prater and Augarten were only re-opened to the public at the end of July. However, as Thayer-Forbes [p. It was therefore of importance to him, if possible, to obtain the joint services of some man and wife, and such a couple, by the name of Herzog, now offered themselves as servant and housekeeper.
As TF [p. What about Vienna's theatre life during At the Burg--the real Court Theatre, forming, indeed, a part of the Imperial residence--after being closed some weeks, a French company opened on the 18th of July, played for a time alternately with a German one, and then held--as if in bitter irony--exclusive possession of the stage. Was not Vienna a French city? The Burg a French palace? Did not Napoleon's eagle head the Wiener Zeitung? At Schoenbrunn the threatre was devoted almost exclusively to Italian opera and ballet, for the amusement of the French Court" [TF: ].
TF then discusses the director of the Viennese Court theatres, Hartl, who is reported as having tried to found a new charitable activity for the benefit of theatre members and who, in this regard, might also have negotiated with Beethoven, be that in the year or already in the year Hartl now determined, with his next Schiller drama, to put one by Goethe in rehearsal and to provide both with original music.

Beethoven and Gyrowitz were chosen. Beethoven wanted very much to have 'Tell. It turned out, however, that he could make masterly music for this drama also, and he applied the full power of his genius to it. Perhaps Beethoven's experience with the "Ode to Joy" earlier and the "Egmont" just at this time was the origin of a fine remark to Czerny, "Once, when the talk was about Schiller, he said to me: 'Schiller's poems are very difficult to set to music.
The composer must be able to lift himself far above the poet; who can do that in the case of Schiller?

In this respect Goethe is much easier. With respect to the selection of a "national liberation" drama at this time, Maynard Solomon writes:. What might have attracted Beethoven to this commission is described by Solomon in this way:. With respect to the time frame of the creation of this work, we can, to start with, refer to Lockwood who describes it as having been composed at the end of and the beginning of With respect to sketches to the individual "numbers", TF reports:. Therefore, we can imagine that, in the fall of and at the beginning of , Beethoven was busy with this work.
What is interesting is that Barry Cooper [p.

New music was commissioned for both, according to Czerny, Beethoven would have preferred Tell , but this was allocated to Gyrowetz. Cooper's reference to the premiere of this work leads us to moving on to discussing the Vienna Premiere of Egmont. With respect to it, we should first consider Beethoven's life circumstances in the spring of He rented these lodgings on April 24, , at the beginning of the spring rental season, for an annual rent of florins. As far as his appearance was concerned, at this time, he also began to pay more attention to it. After all, this was also the time of his acquaintance with Therese Malfatti.
As we already know, among other things, Bettina tried to bring Goethe and Beethoven together. As we can see, Beethoven's interest in women occurred at least at two levels, namely the personal level regarding Therese Malfatti, but also at an artistic level, mixed with some degree of attraction, in the case of Bettina Brentano, and, last but not least [at least at this time] at the friendship level with respect to Antonie Brentano.
I approached him without embarrassment when my aunt of blessed memory, my teacher and benefactress, called me to her rooms and presented me to him. To is question: 'Can you sing? Then he said jovially with an adoption of the Viennese Dialect: 'That will be pretty how you do! We went to the pianoforte and rummaging around in my music. Just as innocently and unsuspiciously as I had chatted with him and laughed, I now reeled off the air.
Then a kind look came into his eye, he stroked my forehead with his hand and said: 'Very well, now I know. After I had memorized them in a few days he left me with the words: 'There, that's right. So, so that's the way, now sing thus, don't let anybody persuade you to do differently and see that you do not put a mortant in it. Only at the rehearsal when conducting he frequently nodded to me pleasantly and benevolently.
One of the old gentlemen expressed the opinion that the song which the master, counting on certain effects, had set for orchestra, ought to be accompanied by a guitar. Then he turned his head most comically and, with eyes flaming, e said, 'He knows! According to this report, it was the Viennese public who was able to hear Goethe's Egmont with Beethoven's music for the first time.

The next logical steps would be to publish the work in the German-speaking countries. As early as June 6, , Beethoven offered the work to his Leipzig publisher:. Nb: among the lieder that I have offered you, are several by Goethe, also "Kennst du das Land? Beethoven's counter-offer is dated the 2nd of July, Vienna, the 2nd of July, Kunz and Company--dispatch payment to here. As we can see, Beethoven asked for gold ducats instead of , and Egmont was supposed to be shipped with the third transport. The last two transports could be received within 14 days.
The publisher replied to this counter-offer with his letter of July 11, There is a possibility that Beethoven replied to this letter, right away. According to the GA, the following letter by the publisher refers to that:. August ].
Only a few weeks later, Beethoven had Franz Oliva draft a letter to the publisher that might have been included with these lines of his of August 21, As we can see, Beethoven continued to insist on a fee of gold ducats and announced to the publisher that he would soon receive the second shipment, thus also Egmont. The shipment was supposed to leave in a few days. Apparently, the publisher did not reply for some time. It was Beethoven who, at the end of September, wrote to him again and pointed this out:. Leipzig, the 24th of September, Beethoven in Vienna. Romberg, Steibelt and others, who, otherwise, were French citizens, but who no longer are in France, no French publisher will buy a work.

Of the Quartet, some printing has already begun, so that in some copies, I will have to make changes or hold the sheets back. The titles of the Lieder by Goethe are as follows: . Nevertheless, I ask you to answer soon, if not to everything at the same time. This letter indicates that the publisher has received the second shipment, including Egmont. However, the publisher was of the opinion that the work was not suitable for a piano reduction and that complete score would only interest theatres. The publisher continued to insist on the lower fee of gold ducats.
In the list of numbered works, Egmont received No. Finally, the publisher promised to pay attention to all required corrections. Beethoven's letter of October 15, , is the next in which he discussed Egmont again:. Very Esteemed Sir! Zeitung and some scores already then, you can finally send me the Musik. Vienna on the 15th hay month As we can see, Beethoven wanted to send his music to Goethe through the publisher.
It also appears that the two parties have come to an agreement with respect to the fee. The publisher sent his next letter on November 11, However, I will publish the score of the Overture.
As we can see, the publisher still asked for endings to the entre'actes since otherwise, he did not see himself in a position to publish the work in a score edition. The next letter that Beethoven sent to the publisher was dated January 16, Scream, swear about B. Riotte  visited me and told me that you had enquired with him as to what he thought of my works and also whether you could take them? Kyrie eleison. Nb: I thank you for the Musik.
