Beethoven composed this cheerful-ironic piece in 1790 during his student years in Bonn and performed it in spring 1791, perhaps as a contribution to the carnival season. The very special "thin" instrumentation was extended to a classical measure. Through a new key and other details, an arrangement has been created that is also suitable for an orchestra in composition and offers a lot of playful pleasure.Hörbeispiel - Audio example 1: Marsch - MarchHörbeispiel - Audio example 2: Deutscher Gesang - German SongHörbeispiel - Audio example 3: Jagdlied - Hunting SongHörbeispiel - Audio example 4: Romanze - RomanceHörbeispiel - Audio example 5: Kriegslied - War SongHörbeispiel - Audio example 6: Trinklied - Drinking SongHörbeispiel - Audio example 7: Deutscher Tanz - German DanceHörbeispiel - Audio example 8: Coda - Coda

Although the opus number is higher than that of the violin romance in G major, Beethoven probably already wrote this piece in 1798. The original one-voice solo instrument was supplemented in many ways to form a piano movement. Missing dynamics were applied, the instrumentation slightly expanded. Here, too, there are similar pedagogical intentions as in the Romance op.50 in G major: a quite easily playable piece for your orchestra pianist in the style of the Viennese Classic.Hörbeispiel - Audio example

The original was probably composed in 1793 and was most likely intended as the final movement of the octet op. 103. In the instrumentation (2 Ob, 2 Kl, 2 Fg, 2 Hrn) the two natural horns are particularly striking: they are virtuosic, almost concertante.
In this arrangement, the added strings serve partly to amplify the wind instruments, but also to structure and colour the arrangement. The horn parts have been normalized. The result is a melodically catchy piece with a rondo character and classical cut.
