Ring in the New Year with a look back at one of the most famous pieces of music ever written, Beethoven's 5th symphony!  This symphony shattered conventions and built new ones that have endured in music until this very day. We'll take a look at how Beethoven built this revolutionary symphony, and how he both borrowed from his predecessors and moved away from them. We'll also explore the cultural, philosophical, and political connotations of this monumental piece. Happy New Year from Sticky Notes!
