    Absolute music (sometimes abstract music) is music that is not explicitly "about" anything; in contrast to program music, it is non-representational. The idea of absolute music developed at the end of the 18th century in the writings of authors of early German Romanticism, such as Wilhelm Heinrich Wackenroder, Ludwig Tieck and E. T. A. Hoffmann but the term was not coined until where it. For conductor and musicologist Nikolaus Harnoncourt, expressive meaning was central to music. Music can cry out in pain or anger, it can soothe, it can exult in joy. Harnoncourt sought to restore these many meanings to music and, for this reason, insisted on drama and urgency in his performances. In particular his Beethoven recordings possess a sense of danger and risk that make the music jump.

    Grosse Fuge demands attention as the most advanced work of our greatest composer. In this article, we review the development of the fugue as a musical genre, place the Grosse Fuge in the context of Beethoven's late quartets to which he devoted his final years, examine its remarkable structure, consider its early performances, and then survey the often-heard full string orchestral adaptations. Ludwig van Beethoven (baptized Decem – Ma ) was a German composer of Classical music, the predominant musical figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest of composers, and his reputation inspired – and in some cases intimidated – composers, musicians, and audiences who were to come after him.

    Ludwig van Beethoven (baptized 17 December in Bonn – 26 March in Vienna; pronounced LUD-vig vahn BAY-TOH-ven) was a German wrote classical music for the piano, orchestras and different groups of best-known works are his third ("Eroica"), fifth, sixth ("Pastorale") and ninth ("Choral") symphonies, the eighth ("Pathetique") and fourteenth ("Moonlight Born: Bonn. This major new study of Beethoven and his music is written as a single, continuous narrative, using a strictly chronological approach that enables each work to be seen against the musical and biographical background from which it emerged. The result is a much closer integration of life and works than is often achieved. The approach works particularly well for Beethoven for two reasons.5/5(3).
