Moonlight Sonata, No. 14 in C# Minor, mvt. 1, Adagio (Guitar Transcr - A piece dedicated to a student, Giulietta Guicciardi, with whom Beethoven had fallen in love, the Moonlight Sonata has become a popular favorite for concert pianists. Its popularity transcends the bounds of style, drawing in even non-classical music fans with its dreamlike first movement, the Adagio. Deeply personal, Beethoven's Adagio entrances listeners with its complex emotion. The peaceful, rolling movement of the arpeggios contrast with its haunting melody and somber bass line to portray the thought of someone who can find beauty in the midst of conflict.

Leonard Bernstein performs Beethoven's Ode to Joy - Finale
Leonard Bernstein performs Beethoven's Ode to Joy - Finale Leonard Bernstein conducts the Vienna Philharmonic in Beethoven's Ode to Joy. This is the final part of the piece, which contains the incredible Prestissimo Finale. This portion of the movement begins with the contrapuntal union of the Ode to Joy and the Church Theme from the previous clip by the full chorus. After the choral fugue, the soloists return in a lighter, more carefree rendition of the Ode to Joy theme (2:32). Seizing on their excitement, the chorus join the soloists in the song of joy (3:10). Soon, however, the chorus falls silent as the soloists reflect one final time on the divine inspiration for joy and brotherhood with heart-rendingly beautiful cadenzas (4:13). These cadenzas lead us to the Prestissimo finale. After a silence and a quick crescendo of strings (5:18-5:27), the entire cast, every chorus member and every player down to the triangle, launches into the finale with guns blazing. After one more interruption by a gigantic, surreal Maestoso (6:14-6:37), the orchestra charges full speed ahead to the final cadence.

Beethoven Symphony #7 in A Major, Opus 92 - 3rd Movement
Beethoven Symphony #7 in A Major, Opus 92 - 3rd Movement Scherzo & Presto from Beethoven's Symphony in A Major, Op. 92, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. This piece, composed in 1811, was the seventh of his nine symphonies. He worked on it while staying in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice in the hope of improving his health. It was completed in 1812, and was dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries. At its debut, Beethoven was noted as remarking that it was one of his best works. The second movement Allegretto was the most popular movement and had to be encored. The instant popularity of the Allegretto resulted in its frequent performance separate from the complete symphony. The work was premiered in Vienna on December 8, 1813 at a charity concert for soldiers wounded in the Battle of Hanau, with Beethoven himself conducting and double featured with the patriotic Wellington's Victory. The orchestra was led by Beethoven's friend, Ignaz Schuppanzigh, and included some of the finest musicians of the day: violinist Louis Spohr. Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Giacomo Meyerbeer, Antonio Salieri, Anton Romberg, and the Italian double bass virtuoso, Domenico Dragonetti, whom Beethoven himself described as playing "with great fire and expressive power". It is also said that the Italian guitar virtuoso Mauro Giuliani played cello at the premiere. The piece was very well received, and the second movement, the allegretto, had to be encored immediately.

Beethoven Piano Sonata 17 The Tempest Mov 1 Fortepiano
Beethoven Piano Sonata 17 The Tempest Mov 1 Fortepiano Paul Badura-Scoda The Piano Sonata No. 17 in D minor, Opus 31 No. 2, was composed in 1801/02 by Ludwig van Beethoven. It is usually referred to as "The Tempest" (or Der Sturm in his native German), but this title was not given by him, or indeed referred to as such during his lifetime; instead, it comes from a claim by his associate Anton Schindler that the sonata was inspired by the Shakespeare play. However, much of Schindler's information is distrusted by classical music scholars. Renowned British music scholar, Donald Francis Tovey, in his authoritative book A Companion to Beethoven's Pianoforte Sonatas, states that "The story that Beethoven connected this sonata with The Tempest is evidently one of many such inventions by his biographer Anton Schindler" (pg 285). The piece consists of three movements and takes approximately twenty-five minutes to perform: 1. Largo - Allegro 2. Adagio 3. Allegretto Each of the movements is in sonata form, though the second lacks a substantial development section. The first movement alternates brief moments of seeming peacefulness with extensive passages of turmoil, after some time expanding into a haunting "storm" in which the peacefulness is lost. There is a long recitative section at the beginning of this movement's recapitulation. The second movement in B flat major is slower and more dignified. It mirrors the opening of the first movement both through use of a rolling recitative-like arpeggio on the first chord, and the rising ...
