So what'd you pick, OSK?


Op. 22. One, because I played it. But also, I love it the most out of all the early sonatas. smile

For what it's worth Chris,

You're supposed to pick one of the early sonatas, what he calls "the first 13 sonatas". It's a bit confusing the way he's referring to the numbering, but he means sonatas 1-11, 19, or 20. (19 and 20 were written in the same time period as the first 11.)

op.27/1 (sonata #13) is one of the "experimental" sonatas he's going to be talking about in the third week.


-J


You know, I was carefully counting to make sure that Op.27 No 1 was among the first 13. But I had completely forgotten about his inclusion of the Op 49 sonatas among the first 13. (Sigh) Now I'll need to go back and pick another! Ironically I had originally chosen the Pastorale sonata #15, Op 28. Time to pick it up again. Thanks for catching this for me.

No problem, though when you say "time to pick it up again", I hope you don't mean you're going to choose op.28, because that's not one of the early ones either!

The larger point is this: Sonata op.22 (usually called #11, but maybe here Biss is calling it "the 13th sonata", I don't know) is usually looked on as Beethoven's last "early" sonata. One that looks back and embraces all the traditional forms. The next ones-- including op.27 and 28-- become more experimental in different ways, and perhaps begin Beethoven's "middle" period.

Good luck--

-J

I picked Op. 2 No. 2 in A Major because I've lately been falling in love with it and wanted to be more familiar with it! I've played Op. 7 but never Op. 2 No. 2 although one of these days I'd like to...

I've been working on it all summer, and now it's coming together. The first movement is tough because it moves so rapidly. The Largo is astonishing, and it's unlike anything else Beethoven wrote, especially in its coda (which lasts for 1/3 of the piece!). And the last movement-- beautiful, graceful, a little rambling-- is a lot of fun to lose yourself in.

That's great (I'm jealous)! You should add Op. 7 to your Beethoven journey... it's very rewarding to play. The last movement is a bit similar in some ways to that of 2/2 - grazioso, charming, and utterly delightful! smile

Yes, op.7 is awesome. I was thinking of including it, and I talked about it with my teacher... but I finally decided that the last movement was, indeed, a little too much like 2/2's, and I wanted more overall opus number variety (instead of doing large-scale sonatas from "opera" 2 and 4)

Ah, well that's a good plan. Impossible to go wrong choosing any of the Beethoven sonatas!

Jason - you've some really wonderful sonatas. I wish I had the energy to learn lots of Beethoven: for me, at least, it's absolutely excruciating to wrap my hands around his music, and polishing it? nightmarish! I suppose it's like Bach or Schoenberg: the deeper you explore, the more beauties you see - and the more clearly you perceive your flaws.

The only flaw is letting fear stop you; time constraints, fine, no instrument, I'll accept, but fear of not doing it justice? Pfft laugh I mean, um, play what your heart tells you to play and always remember: the most saccharine views are afforded by the treacherous and wearisome journeys of the soul; to be graced with facility is not to adorn oneself with beauty, it does not grant you the map or carry you the right way, only your heart can perform such tasks and, if we let it, it will do so willingly and gently, without fanfare or aplomb, trailing humour and accomplishment within its wake....or something....*cough*...

For what it's worth, my piano teacher always told me to learn as much repertoire as I could while I was young, even if I felt I couldn't get it perfect yet. He said it gets harder and harder to memorize new repertoire as you get older, but once you've learned a piece you can spend the rest of your life polishing it!

That's an encouraging article. I'm glad to hear about the quantity and quality and variety of the students. (I'm one of those who have noodled through all the Beethoven sonatas and actually performed several of them.) This is a great course!

I don't think so. Not only that, you can't even register for a course (and view its videos) once it's been ongoing for a certain period of time.

I think they're trying to promote the idea of active course-taking, as opposed to being a repository of material, like Kahn Academy and YouTube.

ChopinAddict, it is not difficult to download the subtitles from these videos. If you'd like, I can give you complete transcripts, although the musical examples won't be there... Of course, you can have Beethoven sonatas loaded up ready to stream and play the excerpts at their respective points of the lectures that way!

Thanks, OSK. That would be great whenever you have the time. thumb smile

I'm catching up on my Biss lectures...

In week 3 ("New Paths"), he says that, like op.26, op.27/1 has the property that none of its movements is in sonata form. In fact, the point is even restated as the review question at the end of the lecture.

In what way is the last movement not in sonata form?

Could an argument be made for sonata-rondo form that would satisfy both your and his perceptions?

I have no problem calling this a sonata-rondo; I'd have had no problem if he'd said this has rondo form. My problem was that he specifically said it was not in sonata form!

(But then, he went on to talk about how the first movement of op.27/2 was in sonata form, and gave several reasons why its sonata form is a bit hidden. This was satisfying to me, since I'd had arguments on the form of that movement on this forum before!)

What is the uncertainty here? The form is fairly straightforward sonata-rondo, with a coda. So it can't be sonata (i.e. sonata-allegro) form.

edit: the theme returns after the 1st episode in the tonic. That's the main distinguishing factor.

It was in whichever lecture he devoted to 27/2; I think the second-to-last video from the third week.

"What's the uncertainty?" So few things in music are completely certain... surely the exact difference between "sonata-rondo" vs. "sonata" is not one of them.

At any rate, if you claim the last movement of 27/1 isn't sonata form because the return of the theme (in what would be the "development") is in the tonic, you're going to run into trouble. The same thing happens in the first movements of op.31/1 and 31/3! Granted, in those cases, less of the theme is heard before the "development" starts happening, compared to the last movement of op.27/1. But now we're in ambiguous waters.

I say: the last movement of op.27/1 is in sonata-rondo form, and also in sonata form. (Which anyway is necessary for the statement people sometimes make, that op.26 is the only Beethoven sonata with no movement in sonata form.)

Weird... I'm catching up on week 4 now, and once again, not only did Biss say something I immediately realized was wrong, but he repeated that wrong statement as the end-of-the-lecture review quiz!

The statement was that op.78 is the only sonata of the 32 whose first movement repeats the development-recap.

Enjoying the lectures, though. smile
