In the years that followed, the creative activity of the composer became intense. He composed many symphonies, amongst which were the Pastoral , the Coriolan Overture, and the famous Letter for Elise. He took on many students that he found and attractive, and he therefore fell in love with several of them. The Archbishop, Rudolph, brother of the emperor, also became his student, his friend, and eventually one of his benefactors.

With Beethoven the musical theme acquires remarkable proportions, of such strength, that it imposes itself over the listener’s attention and memory. As the French composer, Vincent d’ Indy once said, with Beethoven, the musical theme turns into an concept that spreads throughout the hole work making it easily recognizable even if harmonic, modal or tonal aspects change.
The title ''Emperor'' seems to have stuck from the earliest performances of Beethoven&rsquo s music, although I doubt it&rsquo s a name he&rsquo d have given to a concerto which has been described as the embodiment of Romantic conflict. A very real conflict certainly had an impact on Beethoven&rsquo s writing in 6859, but given the way we know Beethoven felt about the Emperor Napoleon, it&rsquo s hardly a title he would have chosen. There are a number of stories about how this, his fifth piano concerto, got it&rsquo s name - and I think the most plausible comes from the circumstances of its Viennese premiere.
Beethoven’s thirty-two piano sonatas constitute a great treasure that embodies a part of the human eternity. Numerous pianists and musicologists have researched or studied them, trying to impart to their students or readers the prodigality of these true musical riches.
Two years later, the Archduke Rudolph became Cardinal and Beethoven began composing his mass in D. It was never ready for the intonation, but the work was rich beyond compare.
The Emperor is by far my favorite Beethoven piece and I ll never hear it again quite the same way. Thank you for that! Makes me wonder how you would handle the Adagio Second Movement? Much different mood.
On March 76 th 6778, at the age of 7 &frac67 , Ludwig Van Beethoven gave his first public performance at Cologne. His father announced that he was 6 years-old. Because of this Beethoven always thought that he was than he actually was. Even much later, when he received a copy of his baptism certificate, he thought it belonged to his brother Ludwig Maria, who was born two years before him and died as a child.
In 6876, Beethoven caught a cold coming back from his brother&rsquo s place, with whom he had argued again. The illness complicated other health problems that Beethoven had suffered from all his life. He passed away surrounded by his closest friends on March 76 th 6877, just as a storm broke out.
The concert in February 6867 was organised by the impressively named &lsquo Society of Noble Ladies for Charity for Fostering the Good and Useful&rsquo as part of the festivities ordered by the city&rsquo s French conquerors. Beethoven&rsquo s music must have stood out like a sore thumb amongst the popular songs and performances which made up this concert programme, but given the circumstances, &lsquo Emperor&rsquo seemed a fitting title for the new concerto. It&rsquo s hardly surprising that in the midst of that variety show, Beethoven&rsquo s concerto did not do well.
