A production of Telemundial, recorded in January & February 1984 at the Philarmonie, Berlin.

The Symphony No. 8 in F major, Op. 93 is a symphony in four movements composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1812. At the time Beethoven was 41 years old. The work took Beethoven only four months to complete, and is, unlike many of his works, without dedication. The premiere took place on 27 February 1814, at a concert in the Redoutensaal, Vienna, at which the Seventh Symphony (which had been premiered two months earlier) was also played.

Beethoven was growing increasingly deaf at the time, but nevertheless led the premiere. Reportedly, "the orchestra largely ignored his ungainly gestures and followed the principal violinist instead."

When asked by his pupil Carl Czerny why the Eighth was less popular than the Seventh, Beethoven is said to have replied, "because the Eighth is so much better."

Beethoven fondly referred to it as "my little Symphony in F," distinguishing it from his Sixth Symphony, a longer work also in F. The Eighth Symphony is generally light-hearted, though not lightweight, and in many places cheerfully loud, with many accented notes. Various passages in the symphony are heard by some listeners to be musical jokes.

As with various other Beethoven works such as the Opus 27 piano sonatas, the symphony deviates from Classical tradition in making the last movement the weightiest of the four.

I. Allegro vivace e con brio
II. Allegretto scherzando
III.Tempo di menuetto
IV. Allegro vivace

A production of Telemundial, recorded in November 1982 at the Philarmonie, Berlin.

The Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68, also known as the Pastoral Symphony, is a symphony composed by Ludwig van Beethoven and completed in 1808. One of Beethoven's few works containing explicitly programmatic content, the symphony was first performed in the Theater an der Wien on 22 December 1808 in a four-hour concert.

The symphony has five movements, rather than the four typical of symphonies of the Classical era. Beethoven wrote a programmatic title at the beginning of each movement:

I. Awakening of cheerful feelings on arrival in the countryside - Allegro ma non troppo
II. Scene by the brook - Andante molto mosso
III. Merry gathering of country folk - Allegro
IV. Thunder, Storm - Allegro
V. Shepherd's song. Cheerful and thankful feelings after the storm - Allegretto

A production of Telemundial, recorded in September & December 1983 at the Philarmonie, Berlin.

The Symphony No. 5 in C minor of Ludwig van Beethoven, Op. 67, was written between 1804 and 1808.
It is one of the best-known compositions in classical music and one of the most frequently played symphonies, and it is widely considered one of the cornerstones of western music.

First performed in Vienna's Theater an der Wien in 1808, the work achieved its prodigious reputation soon afterward. Like Beethoven's Eroica (heroic) and Pastorale (rural), Symphony No. 5 was given an explicit name besides the numbering, though not by Beethoven himself. It became popular under "Schicksals-Sinfonie" (Fate Symphony), and the famous five bar theme was coined "Schicksals-Motiv".

As is typical of symphonies in the classical period, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony is in four movements:

I. Allegro con brio
II. Andante con moto
III. Scherzo: Allegro
IV. Allegro – Presto

A production of Telemundial, recorded in November 1982 at the Philarmonie, Berlin.

The Symphony No. 4 in B♭ major, Op. 60, is the fourth-published symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven.
It was composed in 1806 and premiered in March 1807 at a private concert in Vienna at the town house of Prince Lobkowitz. The first public performance was at the Burgtheater in Vienna in April 1808.

The symphony is in four movements. It is predominantly genial in tone, and has tended to be overshadowed by the weightier Beethoven symphonies that preceded and followed it – the Third Symphony (Eroica) and the Fifth. Although later composers including Berlioz, Mendelssohn and Schumann greatly admired the work it has not become as widely known among the music-loving public as the Eroica, the Fifth and other Beethoven symphonies.

This symphony consists of four movements:
I. Adagio – Allegro vivace
II. Adagio
III. Allegro vivace
IV. Allegro ma non troppo

A production of Telemundial, recorded Jan & Feb 1984 at the Philarmonie, Berlin.

The Symphony No. 3 in E♭ major, Op. 55, (also Italian Sinfonia Eroica, Heroic Symphony) is a symphony in four movements by Ludwig van Beethoven. One of the composer's most celebrated works, the Eroica symphony is a large-scale composition that marked the beginning of Beethoven's creative middle period.

Beethoven originally dedicated the third symphony to Napoleon Bonaparte, who he believed embodied the democratic and anti-monarchical ideals of the French Revolution. In the autumn of 1804, Beethoven withdrew his dedication of the third symphony to Napoleon, and re-dedicated it to Prince Joseph Franz Maximilian Lobkowitz.

Composed mainly in 1803–1804, the work is grounded in the Classical symphonic tradition while also stretching boundaries of form, length, harmony, and perceived emotional and possibly cultural content.
It has therefore widely been considered an important landmark in the transition between the Classical period and the Romantic era.

This symphony consists of four movements:
I. Allegro con brio
II. Marcia funebre: Adagio assai
III. Scherzo: Allegro vivace
IV. Finale: Allegro molto

Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique perform the world's most iconic piece of classical music, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

Bringing out all the revolutionary fervour that Gardiner believes underpins the work and performing on period instruments of Beethoven's day, this performance brings us an authentic re-imagination of the sounds Beethoven's original audiences would have heard.

Shot on location in St John's Smith Square, the performance looks and sounds stunning. Ahead of the performance, Gardiner and the principals of the orchestra discuss the issues in trying to breathe new life into such a famous piece and how their period instruments transform the symphony's sound.

The protests in Hong Kong have placed the city under the eyes of the world. These are highly tense times, where a lot of different emotions appear to cross the minds and hearts of Hong Kong citizens (and please, fellow Hong Kongers, allow me the honor and privilege to refer to myself as one of yours). In other words, Hong Kong seems to live a period of Sturm und Drang ("Storm and Stress").

For a while I have been working on a transcription of Ludwig van Beethoven's first movement from the Sonata quasi una Fantasia No. 14, Op. 27 No. 2 - most commonly known as "Moonlight Sonata" (1801) - as an homage to the composer on the occasion of the upcoming 250th anniversary of his birth (1770 - 2020). This movement (Adagio sostenuto) is probably one of the most iconic pieces of music of the Romantic era. Both its melody and key signature were source of inspiration for countless Romantic composers following Beethoven, among whom Frederic Chopin (who, inspired by it, wrote his famous Fantaisie Impromptu, Op. 66).

Coming to the point, the aim of this video is to show Hong Kong as may have never been seen by people who may have heard of it, but never visited it. Beethoven's notorious movement (which I transcribed by keeping the original key signature, i.e. C sharp minor) functions as the soundtrack for a journey through some of the most iconic locations of the city. At the same time, this video is also a reminder to all of us citizens of this amazing city of what we love about this special place, which everyday arouses Romantic-period-like feelings and emotions through its painting-like sceneries and welcoming people.

My deepest thanks go to the following people, whose help was crucial for the completion of this project: Giovanni Santini (audio mixing), Luca Ricci (audio mastering), Dan Eady (video production), and Peter Shadbolt (executive producer).

The Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, is the final complete symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven, composed between 1822 and 1824. It was first performed in Vienna on 7 May 1824. One of the best-known works in common practice music,[1] it is regarded by many critics and musicologists as one of Beethoven's greatest works and one of the supreme achievements in the history of western music. In the 2010s, it stands as one of the most performed symphonies in the world.

The symphony was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony (thus making it a choral symphony). The words are sung during the final movement by four vocal soloists and a chorus. They were taken from the "Ode to Joy", a poem written by Friedrich Schiller in 1785 and revised in 1803, with text additions made by the composer.

In 2001, Beethoven's original, hand-written manuscript of the score, held by the Berlin State Library, was added to the United Nations Memory of the World Programme Heritage list, becoming the first musical score so honoured.

The Piano Sonata No. 14 in C♯ minor "Quasi Una Fantasia", Op. 27, No. 2, popularly known as the Moonlight Sonata, is a piano sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven. It was completed in 1801 and dedicated in 1802 to his pupil, Countess Giulietta Guicciardi.

The piece is one of Beethoven's most popular compositions for the piano, and it was a popular favorite even in his own day. Beethoven wrote the Moonlight Sonata in his early thirties, after he had finished with some commissioned work; there is no evidence that he was commissioned to write this sonata.

The sonata consists of three movements:

I. Adagio Sostenuto

The first movement, in C♯ minor, is written in A-B-A form. The movement opens with an octave in the left hand and a triplet figuration in the right. A melody that Hector Berlioz called a "lamentation", mostly by the right hand, is played against an accompanying ostinato triplet rhythm, simultaneously played by the right hand. The movement is played pianissimo or "very quietly", and the loudest it gets is piano or "quietly".

The adagio sostenuto has made a powerful impression on many listeners; for instance, Berlioz said of it that it "is one of those poems that human language does not know how to qualify".
Beethoven's student Carl Czerny called it "a nocturnal scene, in which a mournful ghostly voice sounds from the distance". The movement was very popular in Beethoven's day, to the point of exasperating the composer himself, who remarked to Czerny, "Surely I've written better things."

II. Allegretto

The second movement is a relatively conventional scherzo and trio, a moment of relative calm written in D♭ major, the more easily notated enharmonic equivalent of C♯ major, the parallel major of the first movement's key, C♯ minor. Franz Liszt is said to have described the second movement as "a flower between two chasms". The slight majority of the movement is in piano, but a handful of sforzandos and forte-pianos helps to maintain the movement's cheerful disposition.

III. Presto Agitato

The stormy final movement (C♯ minor), in sonata form, is the weightiest of the three, reflecting an experiment of Beethoven's (also carried out in the companion sonata Opus 27, No. 1 and later on in Opus 101), namely, placement of the most important movement of the sonata last. The writing has many fast arpeggios/broken chords, strongly accented notes, and fast alberti bass sequences that fall both into the right and left hands at various times. An effective performance of this movement demands lively and skillful playing, and is significantly more demanding technically than the 1st and 2nd movements.

Of the final movement, Charles Rosen has written "it is the most unbridled in its representation of emotion. Even today, two hundred years later, its ferocity is astonishing."

Beethoven's heavy use of sforzando notes, together with just a few strategically located fortissimo passages, creates the sense of a very powerful sound in spite of the predominance of piano markings throughout.

Top composers and orchestra directors world wide teach their young musical prodigies why they love Cuban music so much. Particularly in Japan, they literally believe to be the premier musical interpreters of Cuban syncopated rhythms; and as such, go through great pains to arrange difficult pieces like the one featured in this video. Proving the old adage: Music has no borders.

Give a warm welcome to Akira Miyagawas youth orchestra of Japan as they interpret "The Dueling No. 5's". Ludwig van Beethoven (late 1700's to early 1800's composer/musician) and Pérez Prado (1950's composer/musician creator of Mambo dance rhythm) would be extremely proud of Akira's arrangement, played by super talented 14-years-old musicians... way to go Japan!

I hope you enjoy their "mojito sound" and spread the love. You decide.
