Course Schedule – Fall 2024 / Art and Music / BEETHOVEN: THE MIDDLE YEARS

Coordinators: Arlene Hajinlian, Larry Shapiro

Beethoven, now established as a celebrated Viennese composer, was astonishingly productive during the the years from 1802 – 1814.

Among his best known compositions of this period are the 3rd, 5th, and 6th Symphonies, the Violin Concerto, the 3rd and 4th Piano Concertos, and his opera Fidelio. His compositional writing is expanding the traditions and language of the Classical Period, and are often referred to as “Heroic,” and gradually becoming stylistically what we think of as “Romantic.”

Through history and music, we will deepen our appreciation of Beethoven’s incomparable genius.
