BEETHOVEN, Music for a knights ballet, youth orchestra

Product no.: 0434

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
