Variations on a Beethoven Allegretto

 

Details

Composer(s) / Arranger(s): David Bobrowitz,

Performance Time: 3:30  |  Grade: 2 1/2

The Allegretto from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 runs almost eight minutes.  Beethoven began working on this symphony in 1811, while he was staying in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice in the hope of improving his health. It was completed in 1812, and was dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries. Composer/arranger Bobrowitz has made his own set of six variations to this famous mysterious chordal melody. Variation one - adds a lovely lyrical melody above the chord progression. Variation two - highlights a sixteenth note figure passed from one group to another. Variation three - features a new melody that is derived from chord inversions. Variation four - is at a faster tempo and the melody is Bohemian in flavor. Variation five - the low instrument players are featured. The piece ends with a dramatic sixth variation that features the eighth note triplet against two even eighths. The piece then broadens in a ritardando with big, full chords. This is an exciting piece for players and audience alike, and one that also offers great educational value as well.
