Craft and Tools in Late Beethoven

I've just been watching this lecture and taking copious notes. Quite interesting discussion of HOW Beethoven constructs his first movement of Op. 110 and it actually explains a lot too.

I enjoyed it. You can go through a score and find a lot of these things yourself but it's so much easier when somebody can demonstrate what he/she means on the keyboard. And many of the other lectures on the net about this subject, as well as sonata form etc., are part of online courses available; ergo, somewhat elementary and often not all that well presented. One man has his mobile phone go off during his own lecture from Yale!! ('There are things up with which we will not put', as Winston Churchill once said.)

I liked this lecture very much where Provost Cecil Lytle says Beethoven was very much influenced by CPE Bach and his Prussian Sonatas. I've been listening to some of those Prussian Sonatas since (and they were completely unknown to me!). Quality not so good; tut mir leid!!

This lecture was so interesting, thank you!
I saw a documentary at TV recently on Beethoven. There it was said that this sonata is the only sonata which was not official dedicated to anyone, but Beethoven actually dedicated it in his heart to his "imortal beloved", Josephine von Brunswick (17791821), who had died in that year !

This made me listen again to my orchestration from 2013 of that wonderful intimate masterwork: http://www.gerdprengel.de/Beeth_op110_I_orch.mp3
