Laurence Equilbey dirige la "Fantaisie chorale" de Beethoven


The Fantasy (Fantasia) for piano, vocal soloists, chorus, and orchestra, Op. 80, was composed in 1808 by Ludwig van Beethoven. It is known as the Choral Fantasy (Chorphantasie). Beethoven wrote the piece to conclude the Akademie, a benefit concert for him on 22 December 1808, performed by soloists, chorus and orchestra. The long program presented also the first performances of his Fifth and Sixth Symphonies and the Fourth Piano Concerto. Beethoven was the composer of all pieces, the pianist and the conductor.

The unusual composition unites piano, voices and orchestra. The work begins in C minor, but modulates during the second final movement to C major. The choral section at the end shows similarities in themes to the finale of his later Ninth Symphony.
