A Performance and Brief Discussion of Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 6, mvt. 1 and 2
Savana A. Ricker♦* and Jenny G. Choo
Dr. Sam McClure, Faculty Mentor

This work was composed by the German romantic composer, Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770-1827). This sonata is the first of his opus 30 works and is dedicated to Tsar Alexander I of Russia most likely due to Alexanders liberal reforms after the chaotic period of the Napoleonic Wars. The piece was composed between 1801 and 1802 after Alexander took the throne after his fathers death in 1801. A brief historical introduction will precede the performance of the first two movements of Beethoven's Sonata for Violin and Piano, Opus 30, No. 1.
