The ending is triumphant, as Beethoven hammers his point home, the cello repeating the first bar of the theme over and over again with the piano pounding out the eighth-note accompaniment "I will not give up!
The Late Sonatas of Sonatas Op. They are the last works Beethoven wrote for piano and a solo instrument.

Other works from this period: very few. These sonatas are regarded as Beethoven's only significant works from the year As in the A major sonata, the cello begins alone, but in an entirely new world. Whereas the A major theme is solid and firmly grounded in the cello's lower register, this one breathes an unearthly air, and the entire Andante seems to float somewhere beyond reality. The writing is contrapuntal, with independent voices of equal importance moving gently against each other. The thematic material is once again more complex: the decorative elements Beethoven once applied in his early period are now fused seamlessly into the larger structure.
Long trills function not merely as ornaments but as orchestration, adding inner intensity to the sound. The demonic and anguished Allegro vivace shatters the hypnotic serenity, Beethoven using every possible device to contrast with the previous music. Not only dynamics, rhythm and texture are changed but also tonality: the rest of the movement is no longer in the sonata's main key of C major but in the relative A minor.
In the op. This movement is written in a style new to Beethoven's cello works. In his late period, Beethoven drastically varied the length of his movements. Some of his shorter movements, while having all the structural requirements, are devoid of transitions - Beethoven simply stops writing one kind of music and begins writing another, as if manners and civility had ceased to matter. This happens near the outset of the Allegro where Beethoven uses a surprise F-sharp to stop the motion dead in its tracks.
Out of nowhere the second subject appears - soothing, quiet, but only for a moment. Turmoil returns and the feisty movement is at the double bar before one realizes it A very brief development section contains two ideas: a contrapuntal one followed by a brief chorale, leading to the stormy recapitulation An abrupt "get out and stay out!

An interesting comparison is the first movement of the Op. Beethoven was fascinated by the stars and is reported to have composed in his head while contemplating the mysteries of the universe. Certainly the slow-motion Adagio evokes an other-worldly atmosphere. The movement's timeless feeling is gently punctuated by fleeting scales, as distant as comets.
The mystery soon turns to brooding, with a turbulent modulation moving through several keys before coming to an inconclusive halt. At this moment, a different kind of music emerges , deeply tender in a way that is unique to Beethoven. He then proceeds to create something unexpected and of inspired beauty: the sonata's opening theme reappears , but this time so warmly that its first incarnation seems only a dream.
Phrases repeat over and over, as if asking for something in prayer. After this deeply confessional episode, the Allegro vivace begins in a humorous way , and we are off on a frisky and sometimes funny adventure, full of fantasy and invention. There are inexplicable starts and stops which must have sounded very strange to listeners in Beethoven's time as indeed they still do.
There is a fugato passage and, at the end, a brilliant coda that shows he had not lost interest in using virtuosic feats to create excitement.

After a brief unwinding, a surprise finish recalls the end of the F major sonata. Sonata in D major, Op. Both works employ baroque elements, such as the continuous sixteenth-note patterns found in Vivaldi and Bach. Beethoven's application of this style is powerful: in the opening Allegro con brio he uses the figurations like weapons, firing them off here and there, like a frightened soldier in the dark Schubert may well have heard and copied Beethoven's opening five notes in his "Death and the Maiden" quartet of , which also includes baroque-style passage work.
Although showing strength and confidence, this movement contains odd tentative moments, for example the vague and distracted-sounding transition to the second subject In the development , there is feverish wandering, madness and confusion. No longer composing music that was easy to understand, Beethoven gradually came to be regarded as a mad genius. The next movement, especially, offers an extraordinary contrast to the heavenliness of the previous sonata.
As with the Op. Indeed, the haunting Adagio con molto sentimento d'affetto is the most profound music in the entire cycle, the deathly opening evoking images of funerals. Beethoven uses thickly-written hords in the piano to create a muddy, rumbling sound he could be called the first tone-painter of the piano. After the suspenseful opening, a dirge begins , the pianist's left hand sounding like the slow falling of horses' hooves. A new theme and a change to D major recall better times The return of the opening music is more complex harmonically.
A skipping, dotted rhythm introduces a vision of a dance of death - the smiling skull, the skeletal horse, the black hood. The transition to the finale contains moments of supreme intimacy. The magical modulation to B-flat major takes the listener to a place beyond the pain of all that preceded, seeing the light of heaven for a brief moment.

An unexpected dip downwards to C-sharp minor brings back the sensation of a cold grave. However, Beethoven unexpectedly starts to play games , ntroducing the finale in much the same way as he did in his previous sonata. In the final movement, the Allegro fugato 9 , Beethoven takes the piano and cello sonata to new realms. Reaching the pinnacle of integration, the two instruments join together to create a dancing fugue full of dissonance even in its cheerful sections.
Completely baffling to listeners in Beethoven's own time, the movement still shocks the ear. This fugue, victorious in its conquest of a new language, looks forward to the music of the twentieth century, and is a fitting conclusion to Beethoven's towering literature for piano and cello. The Aspen Music Festival is emotionally charged, guided by administrators and faculty who are visionary and passionate. The Harris's are people whose devotion to culture is for them a way of life. The opportunity to record in this stimulating environment proved valuable beyond words.
When we first played in Harris Hall we immediately felt that it had the ideal acoustics for recording Beethoven. Built from wood, with a high ceiling, it has a resonance which is warm, clear and brilliant. The air at feet is crisp, even in the summer, and seems to contribute to the incisiveness of the sound.
Frequently, we would arrive at the hall and set up just after a concert had concluded, the hall still buzzing with the excitement of a performance. Recording at night when the world is quiet is our preference, and to emerge from the hall at 4am, bathed in the blinding, cool moonlight, was in itself an inspiring experience. We are indeed fortunate musicians to have had the best of all worlds in which to record the best of our music.
