In a letter to his brother, Beethoven admitted that his slowly creeping deafness had made him feel depressed, and that the thought of losing his hearing so soon into his career made him consider suicide. But he fought against those fears and decided he would try to push forward all of the ideas that he had been working with in his early works to the extreme, and bring forward music for the future. This symphony is marked as a product of this turning point, and is considered one of the great turning points in music, and one of the more influential ones. Here, Beethoven breaks so many of the standards of the genre, that many at the time weren’t even sure if it should be called a symphony. The first movement alone has such extended development, crazy harmonies, no traditional melody, and was about the length of most symphonies [around 20 min] at the time. The second movement, a funeral march full of pathos. The third, a rapid fire scherzo, and a theme and variations finale that was more complex and engaging than most symphonic finales [other than this ending and Mozart’s “Jupiter”, no symphony had such an engaging finale that was more than just lighthearted pomp]. Famously, this symphony was originally dedicated to Napoleon, who Beethoven admired for going against the old aristocratic ways, but when Napoleon declared himself Emperor, the story goes that Beethoven cursed his name and “furiously scratched it off the page”. Still, a symphony for a hero, this idea of heroism as a subtle extramusical idea, introduces a celebration for the common man, which would become a strong theme in Beethoven’s later works, and which would inspire people centuries after its premiere. It’s also interesting to note that the final movement is an orchestration of an earlier piano variations Beethoven wrote, after a theme from his ballet, “Prometheus”. Like Prometheus brought fire to mankind, Beethoven brought a new language to music.
So I saw someone who mentioned how similar Once Upon a Time and the Love Theme sounded, so I wanted to give a mashup a whirl! I’m very satisfied with the result; I think this is my favorite piano arrangement I’ve done so far.
