Beethoven, Dvorak and a nice austrian WebSite

April 14, 2006 at 6:55 PM

Hi Everybody,

I just left the violin on it's box and I'm about to prepare dinner.

Bethoven 1st is hard. I don't know if I'll manage to play the Trio at the end of the Menuetto or if I will just play ppp and try not to disturb much (yes, I'm ashamed).
I wanted to keep orchestra and classes apart from each other, but this time I'll have to ask Iris for help.
I don't seem to be making too much progress with the Dvorak Sonatine either. Ah! how i'd like to have someone to play the piano part! Then it would be so much easier and so much funnier.

I'm listening Beethoven's third symphony now. I had never realized that there is such a beautiful Fuge at the beginning of the Finale. The whole movement is amazing!
I've just read it's a "Fugato".
It's so beautiful that I've had to listen to it a second and a third time.
This web-page is VERY interesting. They split each movement and explain what is being played, and there are music files so that one can listen to the part that's being explained.
There are some other compositions, you'll have to look for them

I think I'm going for dinner now.
I wish you a nice weekend! For me there's playing, thesis and hopefully running! Yesterday we had blood donations but on Sunday I have no excuse. Lepzig-Halle waits for me on September 3rd :)
