“Beethoven Encounters: Opus 18 String Quarters Part 1”
on October 3, 2015 at 14:30
at Lincoln Center
10 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY
I am looking forward to hearing Beethoven Quarters (Opus 18: nos 6, 3 and 2). After doing some research about creation of these masterpieces, I learn that Beethoven had to work very hard on composing it, since a hundred other works were already projected by Mozart and Haydn prior to that. Beethoven introduces his own of structural complication. The first, the use of small motives that bind material together. The second, a very great expansion of the materials even by comparison with Haydn’s last quarter. And the third, a new importance given to the coda which will take on monumental proportions in his maturity.
This little video gave me some guidance of what to expect on October 3rd, 2015.
For my classmates enjoy!
