Beethoven Piano Sonatas

My Classical NotesTwo of my grandsons visited me this week. One of them is a serious music student at age 13. I am proud of all of my six grandkids! My grandson is studying the Sonata number 2, Opus 2, number 2 by Beethoven. So… while he was at my home, l put of a DVD of none other than Daniel Barenboim performing this same Sonata. It is actually astounding what level of originality and maturity that Beethoven brought out in this music. Small wonder: Beethoven composed this music at age 25, when he went to Vienna with the intent to study with either Mozart or Haydn. On this DVD, Daniel Barenboim performed the complete Beethoven piano sonatas over eight concerts in two weeks at the Staatsoper in Berlin. The performances were beautifully captured on film. In addition to four DVD releases, each covering two of the concerts, the master classes are released in a separate 2 DVD set – these feature Mr. Barenboim imparting his wisdom to the next generation, featuring some of the world’s most notable young pianists. My grandson ran out to grab his music, and he followed the artist as he performed this amazing music,

Joseph Haydn
(1732 – 1809)

Joseph Haydn (31 March 1732 - 31 May 1809) was an Austrian composer, one of the most prolific and prominent composers of the Classical period. He is often called the "Father of the Symphony" and "Father of the String Quartet" because of his important contributions to these forms. He was also instrumental in the development of the piano trio and in the evolution of sonata form. A life-long resident of Austria, Haydn spent much of his career as a court musician for the wealthy Hungarian aristocratic Esterházy family on their remote estate. Isolated from other composers and trends in music until the later part of his long life, he was, as he put it, "forced to become original".[5] At the time of his death, he was one of the most celebrated composers in Europe. Joseph Haydn was the brother of Michael Haydn, himself a highly regarded composer, and Johann Evangelist Haydn, a tenor. He was also a close friend of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and a teacher of Ludwig van Beethoven.
