The Symphony No. Beethoven fondly referred to it as "my little Symphony in F," distinguishing it from his Sixth Symphonya longer work also in F. The Eighth Symphony is generally light-hearted, though not lightweight, and in many places cheerfully loud, with many accented Simfonia Nr. 7 În La Major. Various passages in the symphony are heard by some listeners to be musical jokes. The work was Op. 92 - Beethoven* - Orchestra simfonică a Filarmonicii George Enescu in the summer ofimmediately after the completion of the Seventh Symphony.
As Antony Hopkins has noted, the cheerful mood of the work betrays nothing of the grossly unpleasant events that were taking place in Beethoven's life at the time, which involved his interference in his brother Johann's love life.
The premiere took place on 27 Februaryat a concert in the RedoutensaalVienna, at which the Seventh Symphony which had been premiered two months earlier was also played.
Reportedly, "the orchestra largely ignored his ungainly gestures and followed the principal violinist instead. When asked by his pupil Carl Czerny why the Eighth was less popular than the Seventh, Beethoven is said to have replied, "because the Eighth is so much better.
This movement is in the home key of F major and is in fast 3 4 time. As with most of Beethoven's first movements HxIxVx (Hardcore Immortal Violence)* - Insanity Or Death this period, it is written in sonata formincluding a fairly substantial coda. As Antony Hopkins has noted,  the movement is slightly unusual among Beethoven's works in that it reaches its dramatic climax not during the development section, but at the onset of the recapitulation.
To this end, the concluding bars of the development form a huge crescendoand the return of the opening bars is marked fff fortississimoi. This extravagance is balanced, however, by the quiet closing measures of the movement.
The opening theme is in three sections of four bars each, with the pattern forte — piano — forte. At the onset of the recapitulation, the theme is made more emphatic by omitting the middle four bars.
There is a widespread belief that this movement is an affectionate parody of the metronomewhich had only recently been invented or more accurately, merely improved by Beethoven's friend, Johann Maelzel. Specifically the belief was that the movement was based on a canon called "Ta ta ta Lieber Maelzel," WoOsaid to have been improvised at a dinner party in Maelzel's honor in There is no evidence corroborating this story and it is likely that WoO was not written by Beethoven but was constructed after-the-fact by Anton Schindler.
The metronome-like parody starts at the very beginning of the movement with even staccato chords in 16th-notes semiquavers played by the wind instruments, and a basic 16th-note rhythm continues fairly steadily through the piece. The tempo is unusually fast for a symphonic "slow movement.
The second subject includes a motif of very rapid 64th notessuggesting perhaps a rapidly unwinding spring in a not-quite-perfected metronome.
This motif is played by the whole orchestra at the end of the coda. A nostalgic invocation of the old minuet Move To Work - Fine Young Cannibals - Fine Young Cannibals, obsolete by the time this symphony was composed. A similar nostalgic minuet appears in the Piano Sonata Opus 31 no. The style of Beethoven's Simfonia Nr.
7 În La Major is not particularly close to its 18th-century models, as it retains a rather coarse, thumping rhythm. This makes the minuet stylistically close to the other movements of the symphony, which likewise rely often on good-humored, thumping accents.
Like most minuets, this one is written in ternary formwith a contrasting trio section containing prized solos for horns and clarinet. The clarinet solo is of significant importance in that it was the first major example of a solo clarinet playing a written G 6. This is the most substantial movement, in sonata rondo form that proceeds at a very fast tempo.
This is the first symphonic movement in which the timpani are tuned in octavesforeshadowing the similar octave-F tuning in the scherzo of the Ninth Symphony.
The opening material reappears three times: at the start of the development section, the start of the recapitulationand about halfway through the coda.
As in the first movement, the move to the second subject first adopts the Op. 92 - Beethoven* - Orchestra simfonică a Filarmonicii George Enescu key, then moves to the normal key exposition: dominantrecapitulation: tonic after a few measures. The coda, one of the most substantial and elaborate in all of Beethoven's works,  contains two particularly striking events.
Out bursts the theme then, in F sharp minor. A few measures later, there is a stunning modulation in which this key is "hammered down" by a semitonearriving instantaneously at the home key of F major. The symphony ends in good humor on a very long passage of loud tonic harmony. Tchaikovsky called this movement, "One of the greatest symphonic masterpieces of Beethoven.
