Ludwig van Beethoven: Allegro and Minuet

Beethoven's Allegro and Minuet is an arrangement of a work originally for two flutes. Here's some information on the piece from the blog "Tutti Beethoven": If this score is any indication, Beethoven in Bonn was a nightowl. On the manuscript of this inventive and interesting duet, he dedicated it to "friend Degenharth, 23 August 1792, 12 at night." Later that year, when Beethoven was about to leave for Vienna, Degenhart would return the favor by assembling a farewell album for the young composer. What is most interesting about this piece is the way that Beethoven is able to take the problem inherent in this ensemble: two flutes in basically the same register, and from this create an exciting and surprising sonata movement and minuet. Lively, cheerful, impressive. Degenhart must have been pleased! This tuneful and joyous piece is a great addition to the violin duet literature!
