Ludwig van Beethoven

Watch a 3 year old truly gifted kid conduct Beethoven’s 5th Symphony to the tune of a von Karajan recording.

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67, was written by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1804–08. This symphony is one of the most popular and best-known compositions in all of classical music, and one of the most often played symphonies. It comprises four movements: an opening sonata, andante, and a fast scherzo which leads attacca to the finale. First performed in Vienna’s Theater an der Wien in 1808, the work achieved its prodigious reputation soon afterwards. E. T. A. Hoffmann described the symphony as “one of the most important works of the time”.

Video – How a Bach Canon Works

Johannes Sebastian Bach

This video shows the intricacy and complexity of Bach’s Canons. The enigmatic 1747  Canon 1 à 2 from Johannes Sebastien Bach’s Musical Offering. The manuscript depicts a single musical sequence that is to be played front to back and back to front.

Johann Sebastian Bach (21 March 1685, O.S.31 March 1685, N.S. – 28 July 1750, N.S.) was a German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist of the Baroque Period. He enriched many established German styles through his skill in counterpoint, harmonic and motivic organisation, and the adaptation of rhythms, forms, and textures from abroad, particularly from Italy and France. Bach wrote much music, which was revered for its intellectual depth, technical command, and artistic beauty. Many of his works are still known today, such as the Brandenburg Concertos, the Mass in B minor, the Well-Tempered Clavier, and his passions, cantatas, partitas, and organ works.
