One of the last works Beethoven wrote before he became aware of his encroaching deafness, the Septet Ensemble Walter Boeykens - Septuor a lighthearted work in the spirit of the eighteenth century serenade. Beethoven had it premiered in the same concert in which he unveiled his Symphony No. The Septet was an immediate success, and the composer later expressed a certain resentment toward this work, remarking that it's popularity eclipsed more deserving compositions.
Nevertheless, the Septet is an interesting work, filled with youthful energy and containing engaging and attractive solos for the instrumentalists. The first of the work's six movements is a slow and deliberate introduction prefacing a fresh and energetic Allegro con brio. The first subject is carried initially by the violin, then by the clarinet.
The second theme brings several other instruments into a dialogue, but is essentially ignored in the development section; after an elaboration of a fragmented version of the first theme, the development section closes in the right key but without a true recapitulation. In the Adagio cantabile, Beethoven shifts to the key of A flat, introducing a tranquil, swaying melody, which the clarinet and violin each play.
The other instruments are generally limited to colorful support, except when the horn takes a tentative melodic lead. It's a spry tune over a tick-tock accompaniment. As is common in Beethoven 's works of this period, the Lose Is Win - Zabriskie Point - Tout Est Bien contains two trios, the second pulling its insistent rhythm from the opening material.
The fourth movement, an Andante, is a set of variations on the Rhenish folk song "Ach Schiffer, lieber 1. Adagio - Allegro con brio - Ludwig van Beethoven.
The Scherzo, marked Allegro molto e vivace, is a vigorous piece with a hint of the hunt about it, thanks to the little figure played by the horn at the beginning. The contrasting trio is essentially a tuneful cello solo 1. Adagio - Allegro con brio - Ludwig van Beethoven by the other strings and bassoon.
