Tune of the Day: Rondo by Beethoven

from Sonata “Pathétique”, arranged for solo flute

This quick cut-time movement in C minor closes Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8, commonly known as Sonata Pathétique because of its tragic sonorities. The Rondo finale is really the second Rondo in the sonata, since the middle movement (Adagio cantabile) also possesses the structural features of that form.

Thanks to Jeffrey for suggesting this piece!
