Subject: Beethoven? Anybody?
Hi all, I'm new to the forum, sorry for any etiquette faux pas. This is a super long shot but I'm desperate! I'm searching for a piece written by Beethoven. The recording I heard was on a cassette of his "Greatest" done in the mid 80's. I cannot remember what the instrumental arrangement was, but the focal point of this particular movement, toward the end, was the piano. It was a very dramatic part that began with rhythmic octaves, then it repeated the theme by creating chords in octaves through out the melody and then ended with a massive scale finishing in the lowest keys of the piano. I attempted to make a recording of the theme on the computer piano and with my voice but unfortunately, I'm having difficulty with the record function. I've listened all the way through ALL movements of ALL of the piano sonatas and have crossed them off the list. It is also none of the 9 symphonies. The issue is Beethoven was so insanely prolific, I've listened for days and still not come across the piece I seek.

The at it's most basic it goes:c'2 dis'2 g'2 d'2 f'2 c'2 dis'2 d'2 but in octaves so it would start on the high C and go down one C, then back up to the high C then repeat the cycle with the following notes, following with double and triple stops- or chords ... hopefully you get what I'm trying to say! Note: I'm not sure if I'm in the right key at all... Im' not in front of a piano and haven't heard the song in too many years to mention.

So, I would appreciate any, and I mean ANY suggestions! Give me an opus and I'm on it!

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
