I'm interested to see what you people think about Op.111?

It's one of the most subjective and personal pieces in Beethoven's ouvre, and I find every single note compelling and beautiful; in fact, it is hard not to be drawn to the beauties of Beethoven's many sonatas & variations for piano, but this one is special Wink. The passion of the first movement and the grace of the arietta that follows are very touching, and Beethoven's craftmanship in the variations form he uses to achieve his means in both movements is unsurpassed. The contrapuntal ingenuity of movement one that precedes the cantabile melodiousness of movement two can be analogized to the idea of Beethoven looking back to the strict classicism of Bach, Handel, Haydn, and his teachers Neefe and Albrechtsberger and forward to the free emotional outpourings in music that would characterize much of the romantic period.


Wow, I wonder what you get in Literature? Rolling Eyes

I love the first movement, the canonic imitations, and in general the fugual style of Beethoven is shown at it's hight I believe.

Are you being sarcastic?
But, anyway, yes; the first movement of opus 111 is one of contrapuntal mastery.

I love all of Beethoven cello sonatas. I've got an amazing DVD of Richter/Rostropovich playing complete cello sonatas. I'll try to rip it if you want.
