Beethoven  Got along with a lot of people (very friendly)  Part of the romantic era  Dad was court musician for elector of Bonn  He was great at piano  Moved to Vienna in 1972  Had many patron “regulars” they liked him writing them pieces  Received annuity from three patrons from 1808. So he wouldn’t move out of town  Also engaged middle-class public with publications and concertizing  A transitional classical-romantic composer  Keeps getting more deaf and it was not getting better so some of his friends start drifting away  Started writing letters: new style like Symphony No. 5 Symphony No. 5  Composed in 1804-1808  Beethoven knew it would attract 2 kinds of audience: -Aristocratic patrons: >Prince Lobkowitz >Count Ramousky >Private Palace premiere New Kinds of Patrons:  Wealthy middle-class music lovers  Paying audience at public concerts, Vienna in 1808  People bought publications-music on paper Beethoven’s fifth in print  Score: format for printing music that shows all orchestral parts together (published in 1809)  Many piano arrangements were published later -not necessarily made by the actual composer -solo piano -especially piano duet (“four hands”) Beethoven symphony No. 5  Fulfills the most important expectations but has other features that appeal to: -connoiseurs -causal or novice music lovers  Meets genre expectations for a symphony (1750s) The Symphony  Closest thing to a concerto  Piece for orchestra in 4 movements -so it sounds like 4 different individual pieces  A showcase for classical-era orchestra -there’s new instruments (clarinets, French horns, etc.) -different timbres  Lasted between 15 to 30 minutes -Beethoven is an exception. He would stretch is out (sometimes)  Each movement had typical characteristics style 1) First Movement: typically fast (relatively); in sonata form 2) Second Movement: slower 3) Third Movement: relatively fast, in dance style, usually minuet, in ABA form 4) Fourth Movement: (finale): fast, sometimes in sonata form Sonata Form  Common in classical first movements  Most narrative form to develop so far (telling a story)  Has 3 sections: exposition (usually repeated), development (unexpected), recapitulation Exposition  Melodies that happen to introduce them  Presents the movements main ideas “themes”  Usually twice  Ends in the wrong key/wrong chord Development  Takes content from exposition and manipulates to make it in a new way  Can be playful or sinister [tones] Recapitulation  Ideas are presented in original order  Ends with the correct key this time Symphony No. 5 (again)  Meets genres expectations for a symphony -has 4 movements with typical features -first and last movements are in sonata form -second movement is slow and long -third movement in ABA form (no minuet)  Composed for an orchestra  For everyone to listen to; people were familiar with the way movements were supposed to sound  Some of its features stir the imagination -unusually intense and dramatic -bigger orchestra with some added instruments (piccolo)  Has 3 instrumentalists that don’t play until the 4 movement -trombones
