Program Notes

From Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, this movement is one of the great composer's most recognizable and performed themes. Featured in the award-winning film The King's Speech, this is a skilled and effective adaptation for young bands.

- Program Note by publisher


The Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92, is a symphony in four movements composed by Ludwig van Beethoven between 1811 and 1812, while improving his health in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice. The work is dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries.

At its première, Beethoven was noted as remarking that it was one of his best works. The second movement, Allegretto, was the most popular movement and had to be encored. The instant popularity of the Allegretto resulted in its frequent performance separate from the complete symphony.
