Teaching the World to Play

Five Before Beethoven

Brian Balmages
Grade: 1.5 - 2

A great compliment to the composer’s popular work A Beethoven Lullaby, this original piece pays homage to Beethoven’s fifth symphony, immersing students in the style of the first movement without feeling like they are playing a watered-down arrangement. Conductors will surely notice the many nods (both subtle and not so subtle) to Beethoven’s masterpiece while also exploring original themes. (2:30)
