Further questions for the Book 3 student:
- What does Beethoven do to this theme starting at three minutes and 24 seconds into it?
- A counter theme enters at about four minutes. How does it contrast the original theme that we're so familiar with?
- Would you call what happens around minute six a climax in the piece? What happens when the theme returns just after that?
- What about the theme at minute 7 and 45 seconds? What kind of Classical style treatment or form are you familiar with that you can detect Beethoven using in this movement?
