Difficult Student 5
Tuesday 4/5 20.02
Today in â€˜Difficult Student â€™ 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 â€˜Righiniâ€™ Variations WoO 65. His sunny Octet for wind came two years later, op. 103. We finish with 2 early songs.
