This one’s for Haz.
That’s my personal favorite section from my hands-down favorite Beethoven symphony, the 7th’s stirring second movement. I like the 5th a lot too, naturally. But if I never hear the damned 9th ever again, it’ll be too soon to suit me.
An excellent selection. 🙂
I like the ninth, even if it is the classical music equivalent of that song that seems to get played on the radio twice an hour. The earlier symphonies don’t always get as much respect — the second is a favorite of mine. I haven’t heard the fourth in a while, maybe I will listen to that one today.
Not being able to go to live music performances when I feel like it has been one of the worst aspects of this whole COVID shutdown craziness. 🙁 Whether it is a full orchestra or a local garage band in a bar, I miss it.
I recognize that as Beethoven, but could never site the composition. I do like it.
