Four: On a Remix of Beethoven

Composed By

Randall D. Standridge

Taking Beethoven’s four note “fate” motive from the first movement of his fifth symphony, composer Standridge has reimagined the symphony movement and taken it in remarkable new directions.  At first following close to the original for a powerful and exciting introduction, the work then segues into a playful gigue in compound meter, followed by a lyrical section with the primary motive presented upside down in horns, much in the spirit of Beethoven’s original.  The final section turns up the excitement meter in a 7/8 dance section that caps off this remarkable new take on Beethoven’s Fifth with a bang!
