Thanks to public radio, I heard Beethoven's Violin "Spring" Sonata No. 5 for the first time today. I enjoyed it immensely.

As I was listening to the piece, I thought to myself, "This must be by someone famous!"

Sure enough, when the announcer stated the name of the composer at the end, he *was* somewhat famous.

I was surprised that the sonata was by Beethoven, because its allegro and scherzo sections seemed much more playful than I had expected from him.

I especially like how the violin and piano have lighthearted conversations in movements I. allegro and III. scherzo:

Beethoven - Violin Sonata No. 5 "Spring"

Yes, Beethoven's a good one for sure. His symphonies and then likely his piano sonatas get the most attention, but his other works (especially the string quartets), are great too.

In fact, if you're the type of person who likes seeing classical music-related movies, I'd heartily recommend A Late Quartet, in which Quartet No. 14 (in C minor) is featured.

I don't dislike Beethoven, and I certainly respect his work immensely, but I usually forgo traditional classical piano music, for something more orchestrated, like something by Holtz or Vivaldi. And if I'm in a "piano" mood, my go-to is more along the lines of something by Tchaikovsky.

Um... he has nine symphonies. All very orchestrated.

TBH, I haven't even listened to those since I was a kid (as in like, seven, when I went through a huge classical bender). I completely forgot!! Usually I associate his solos with depression, and I don't usually play classical when I'm depressed, so I'm afraid to say I've avoided him for years... Obviously...

Post your favorite upbeat symphony of his and I might consider revisiting

You'll recognize this one.

I do heavily enjoy him, though I enjoy the sonata's over his symphonies. (Even though they are very technically acquired and orchestrated) influential of course. I enjoy his third symphony of all
