Without a doubt, Beethoven is my favourite composer! I love the richness of his melodies and the beauty of the harmony he creates.
Beethoven composed for orchestra and for solo instruments. His pieces can be found throughout the Royal Conservatory Repertoire selections for exams.
Whenever you listen to Beethoven, listen for sudden changes in dynamics, and for exciting motives. Also, listen for the familiarness of his melodies. You may have heard them on TV commercials, in movies, and elsewhere.
Here is one of my favourite examples of Beethoven’s music! Enjoy :).
