Polonaise in C Major; Op. 89 by : Ludwig van Beethoven : Otto von Irmer
At first glance; this spirited work does not seem to fit the picture that Beethoven's contemporaries have passed down to us; this is why the work was long looked upon deprecatingly as a “salon piece”. In fact; it is an “occasional” piece in the best sense of the word; having been written in winter 1814/15 for the Russian Czar Alexander I's wife; a great admirer of Beethoven's music. The Czarina was sojourning in the Austrian capital at the time of the Congress of Vienna. The superficial impression of simple; stylized dance music disguises Beethoven at his most “genuine”; waiting to reveal some subtle motivic and thematic material.
