Liszt’s admiration of Beethoven, whom he had met as a boy, would lead him to transcribe all of his symphonies for the piano, a task he carried out over 23 years (from 1838 to 1865). These transcriptions, which Liszt himself performed during his recitals, are today the best known of Beethoven’s complete symphonies, partly due to the characteristics of his pianistic writing, which incorporates great technical demands. The Eighth Symphony, completed in 1812 and premiered in 1814, has a joyful and expansive nature that contrasts with the difficult times Beethoven was experiencing on a personal level. But Beethoven’s work returns over and over again as a source of inspiration, while the piano became the most suitable instrument for experimenting with sound. This is precisely what occurs in John Corigliano’s Fantasia on an Ostinato, a work composed in 1985 and which is based on the evocation of a theme from the Symphony No. 7.
