Comments:Beethoven's CHORAL FANTASY, for piano, choir, and orchestra in c minor op. 80, marks Beethoven's first successful marriage of choral and instrumental music, something he would revisit in his Ninth Symphony. The Choral Fantasy, which includes a long piano solo that Beethoven wrote for himself, was composed in 1808 as the finale of a long concert that also featured the premieres of Beethoven's fifth and sixth symphonies. He wrote the work just days before the performance; in fact, scholars believe that most of the piano solo was improvised during the performance. Comments invited, address to: TheAppraisalMill@aol.com
quasi Andante con moto. Choral Section. Orchestral Arrangement = 4:11 / Piano Arrangement = 4:06
