Symphony No.2 in D, Op 36 3rd movement (Scherzo) Beethoven Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Beethoven wrote 9 symphonies, and they show his development from a strictly classical form in the first two, based on Haydn and Mozart's models, towards a more romantic style, culminating in his 9th.

This 2nd symphony is lively and optimistic, despite the fact that Beethoven was becoming ever more despondent about his increasing deafness.

This 3rd movement is a scherzo, which became a trade-mark of Beethoven's works from this point onward, faster and more quixotic than the more stately minuets of Haydn and Mozart. Scherzo is Italian for joke, and this is manifest in the stops and starts, and the rapid changes of instrumentation.
