Difficult Student 5
Tuesday 4/5 20.02
Today in ‘Difficult Student ’ an early example of Beethoven’s immeasurably rich fantasy. He was such an in incredible improviser that he felt like a fish in water in the variation form. When he was only twenty he demonstrated his prowess in the ‘Righini’ Variations WoO 65. His sunny Octet for wind came two years later, op. 103. We finish with 2 early songs.
