Allegretto


Beethoven, Ludwig van, arr. Newell, Frances, From the Top Music

The lovely "Allegretto" from Symphony No. 7, Op. 92 by Beethoven was deemed by Beethoven himself to be one of his best works. The "Allegretto" was immediately quite popular and often performed apart from the complete symphony, being requested frequently as an encore. Frances has nicely captured the feel of this 2nd movement, and subtle Mallet and Pluck techniques provide a lovely variety of sound and texture.
