The majesty and gravity of the second 21 movement of opus 5ta symphony of Beethoven. One of the most beautiful compositions of the romantic period and evidently of the history of music. He is evident that L.V. Beethoven was a genius, advanced to his time but that lived and felt the influences of the political changes that happened in Europe, and by extension in the world. What today we would call opinion leader.
He was social a cultural leader and therefore. Treating the subject from the sociological point of view, I comprise of a movement that changed the vision of the society and the history of the world. At the same time, or therefore he was a revolutionary. The end of century XVIII and all the practically XIX was scene of the revolution that changed the way to think and to act as much in the social area as cultural and political. I hear that movement of his now more famous symphony, comparable to the novena.
It resists that majesty that I mention with the dramatic quality of the first movement, associated with called of the destiny to the door it is possible to express greater dramatic quality in a phrase? I believe that it is difficult. More difficult still it is to manage to express dramatic quality, sadness, majesty in a work, and that this becomes landlord, the standard, there is no more . Without falling to Beethoven nor too much raising to John Williams, I believe that this last one is of the few that, in the cultural scope in which it moves, and taking into account the present circumstances would be comparable to that one genius of the century ancestor. Sample of it is their works such as the imperial march of the contraataca empire (George Lucas, original Trilogy of Star Wars), or the same main subject of the same trilogy, whose initial film now occupies the fifth chapter of the series. We could speak of the subjects of Hunters of the Coffer Loss , the List of Schindler, or the inaugural and thematic March of the Olympic games of Los Angeles 1984. In each it presents/displays different moods and use complete and deep of the orchestral resources in the best symphonic expression. It is a pleasure and the best luck to be able to attend the vital presence of this great contemporary composer, as well as to have the opportunity to listen to the different orchestral versions from L.V. Beethoven.
