Beethoven Symphony No. 9 (Part 1)
< 1 day ago
This week on Sticky Notes, we explore perhaps the most popular piece of Western Classical Music ever written, Beethoven's monumental 9th Symphony. In fact, its so monumental that for the second time on Sticky Notes, I had to split this episode into 2 parts, with the first two movements this week, and the last two next week. The first movement is, in my mind, the greatest symphonic movement ever written, and we will take it apart, exploring Beethoven's ability to make something incredible out of absolutely nothing. In the second movement, Beethoven breaks rules of his own making in a massive scherzo movement that, as everything Beethoven did, would change how every piece of music was written after it was first heard. Let's dive into one of the pillars of Western Civilization together and thanks for listening!
