More precisely, it comes from late in his first period, just a year or two before the personal crisis brought about by Beethoven’s gradual loss of hearing that is so powerfully reflected in the "Heiligenstadt Testament" and the "Eroica" Symphony. By the mid-1790s, Beethoven had essayed most of the important instrumental genres, but had held off tackling the symphony and string quartet, perhaps because these were the kinds of pieces in which his teacher Haydn had made his greatest mark and enjoyed his most significant successes. When he did finally write, perform, and publish his first two symphonies
Tchaikovsky worked on this piece for only six weeks. After it was done Tchaikovsky was not fond of the work and was not enthusiastic when working on it. He thought the piece was "very loud and noisy" (Lampson, 1996). Although Tchaikovsky did not like the piece that he wrote, it has become one of his most recognized and famous works. Tchaikovsky’s, 1812 Overture, starts out with a soft dynamic giving the feeling of peaceful, almost sleepy, feeling to the piece.
Before 1790, no pedal markings existed. Clementi used it a little in the late 1790’s. He was one of the first composers to compose for the new developments on the piano. In 1800 the una corda was invented which Beethoven and Thalburg made great use of. Pedalling only really developed at the beginning of the 19th century and was used by Chopin and Liszt.
George did survive and grew up to be a healthy child yet shy child. George was educated along with his brother by private tutors as they grew up.

The couple moved to Berlin and lived there for two years while he orchestrated operettas and directed a cabaret orchestra. In 1903 they decided to move back to Vienna where he would then teach students to become composers. In 1908, Schoenberg’s compositions consisted of far-reaching harmonies which would later be used as tonality; therefore many audiences didn’t understand his work, as a result, he felt persecuted by the public. What very much affected his life and career was the affair his wife, Mathilde had with his painting teacher, she left Schoenberg for many months, the affair later led to her committing suicide.

The two composition are significant among Brahms other works as they stem from a period in Brahms life when he just embraced the beauty of color and sound of the clarinet. In addition, the two sonatas were the last chamber pieces Brahms composed before his death. He notably prepared an oft-performed transcription of the sonatas for viola, and altered the register to suit the instrument. While at his Bad Ischl retreat in the summer of 1894, Brhams completed the two sonatas. The two sonatas were reportedly first performed for Duke Georg and his family privately in the September of 1894.
Beethoven’s Middle Period and the Third Symphony, “Eroica” Beethoven’s “Heiligenstadt Testament” is a letter written to his brothers, Carl and Johann. It is a rare, first-hand glimpse at his personal struggles with deafness, thoughts of suicide, and his eagerness to fulfill his “calling” as a composer before his death. This document sets off the portion of his work that is known as the middle or “heroic” period. Beethoven penned this testament in 1802, the same year he began work on his Third Symphony, “Eroica.” Beethoven’s emotional state at the writing of this document was a direct result of his affliction. In this depressed state, he states that his desire to produce “all that [he] felt called upon [him] to produce,” was the only thing that kept him from ending his life.
Bach died in Leipzig, Germany, on July 28, 1750. Today, he is considered one of the greatest European composers of all time. Between 1719 and 1721, Bach made six concertos for Christian Ludwig, the Margrave of Brandenburg. It is most likely that Bach composed the concertos over several years while working, at Köthen, a German city. Since the King Frederick William I of Prussia was not a significant enthusiast of the arts, Christian Ludwig did not have enough musicians in his Berlin ensemble to perform the concertos.
