Beethoven on Innovation: The Glow of Enthusiasm

Beethoven’s craft and passion in his own words.

Steven Lee Elder

06.07.2013

From the glow of enthusiasm I let the melody escape.  I pursue it.  Breathless I catch up with it.  It flies again, it disappears, it plunges into a chaos of diverse emotions.  I catch it again, I seize it, I embrace it with delight….I multiply it by modulations, and at last I triumph in the first theme.  There is the whole symphony.

~ Ludwig van Beethoven
