Talk:32 Variations in C minor (Beethoven)
|WikiProject Classical music|
I think the text often focusses on the emotion which it may arouse in some listeners and therefore quite subjective, not really the style of an encyclopedia.
I hardly think it's typical of Beethoven to vary the dynamics between variations. More accurately, such a tendency is typical of any classical or romantic composer worth his salt. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:48, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
- OK. Removed that part. Wasn't really necessary. This article could use quite a bit of polish.DavidRF (talk) 02:22, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
I think it is important to note that Beethoven seems to have disowned this piece. I have read that from several sources. At least he thought very poorly of it. I wish there could be some scholarly comment on this. I've always found this fascinating.(22.214.171.124 (talk) 09:46, 23 May 2010 (UTC))
- My understanding is that he was irritated that the piece was so popular (like his septet, which came in for similar criticism). I don't think he "disowned" it though. His irritation might be worth mentioning if somebody can dig up a source. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:13, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
