I'm Daniel Barenboim and i would like to
welcome you to "Five minutes on..."
Beethoven's sonata for piano opus 10
number three
if you have watched the sequence on the
moonlight sonata and even more so
another one where it talked about the
impossibility of speaking about music
because when we do that we think we do
that we only talked about our reaction
to the music what we see me
according to our knowledge according to
our mood but not really today about the
essence of music music expresses itself in sound.
Today i would like to tell you
a little story about the last movement
of one of Beethovens most wonderful early
Sonatas or Christine number three.
When i was a child i went to the master
class of Edward Fisher great Swiss
pianist one of the greatest musicians i
think i ever met and he taught give a
lesson on the last movement of this Sonata
which goes something like this
and he spent the whole lesson talking
about the humor in this music and the
humor showed itself by these three notes
of the beginning being interrupted by
the silence and then being repeatedly
and he thought this was a perfect
example of humor in music.
and it was very convincing and I
remember the person who was playing the
piano had great difficulty to express
what the great master was telling him
but it tryed and did it somewhat.
Quite a fewyears later I went to a recital of
another great pianist that I greatly
admire Claudio Arrau. Claudio Arrau was one
the most serious musicians that ever
came on this earth.
He was able to see the dark side and the tragic side in the
most innocent music and I went to have
dinner with him after his concert and he
gave me a long lecture about the tragic
nature of the last movement of page of
the sonata opus ten number three
just imagine he said to me "Just imagine
three notes immediately interrupted as
if they are dying and then comes again
and again they're interrupting. It is the
inability of these three notes to become
something continues and create a melody
this is the very essence of tragic
expression in music.
And then the music gets going.
For me this has remained a perfect example of
the dangers of choosing objectives to
explain the music.
Music can really only be explained through sound.
Thank you very much for watching this sequence.
I hope you have enjoyed it and that would
be very delighted to read or hear your comments.
Thank you very much.
