The tune is written in the key of C Major and it has a strong impressionist influence with frequent modulations and a wandering tonality throughout. The tune follows an A-B1-A-B2 form and there is a definite descending pattern in the key changes. This is achieved through the 1 chord turning minor and becoming a II chord which then leads to the V of the next key. We start the lesson by recapping the basic theory behind sus chords and then explore them in context of major and minor s. Learning and memorising all of the upper structure triads is a daunting task! This lesson introduces the upper structure cheat sheet.

Laura talks to Andrew about taking inspiration from Paul McCartney and the poet Maya Angelou, the joys of giving guitar lessons online and how her songwriting changes between the road and home. Wilhelm Backhaus was one of the first great classical pianists in the modern style - musician more than showman.

These late recordings - which include two complete survey of the Beethoven sonatas one in mono, one in stereo have just reappeared and we talk to music writer Jonathan Summers about them.

Friedrich von Matthisson's poetry was very much in fashion at the end of the eighteenth century and continued to interest composers into the nineteenth century. Beethoven set several of Matthisson's texts, including "Adelaide," op. With a sentimental tone typical of Matthisson, the narrator of "An Laura" wishes someone Laura, presumably joy that is more beautiful than innocence, and peace of mind until they meet again. He envisions the seraphim descending and transporting her soul heavenward, and the last of her days being "ein Sonnenuntergang in Mai" "a sunset in May". Beethoven's partially strophic setting is equally sentimental. The first two strophes are set to the same music, and feature arching, major-mode melodies, introduced and closed by the piano. An abrupt change occurs at the beginning of the final verse, with a shift to the minor and a recitative-like voice part singing of the harmonious sound of heaven's judgement, for Laura evidently led a perfect life.
