Tune of the Day: Allegretto by Beethoven

from Symphony No. 7 in A major

Ludwig van Beethoven composed his seventh symphony in 1811–1812. At the premiere, which took place in Vienna in 1813, the composer was noted as remarking that it was one of his best works. The second movement, marked “Allegretto” (“a little lively”), was the most popular movement and had to be encored immediately. Its instant popularity resulted in its frequent performance separate from the complete symphony.

Thanks to April for suggesting this piece!
