Single Beethoven Allegretto

Beethoven Allegretto

SINGLE PRODUCTION | Vocals: Caroline Adler (2020)

In the single Beethoven Allegretto, David Reichelt puts the second movement of Ludwig van Beethoven’s seventh symphony into a modern and new context. Classical opera singing mixes with strings and electronic music in the piece.

The sounds of the single Beethoven Allegretto are inspired by David Reichelt’s soundtrack for the series “8 Days,” so as with “8 Days,” soprano Caroline Adler contributes vocals. The text is taken from Shakespeare’s Sonnet 146: Poor Soul, The Centre Of My Sinful Earth.
