Artistic Statement

Beethoven is one of my favorite composers because his extraordinary spirit gives me a special musical feeling. I truly like his adventures in musical harmony, structural complexity, and unique rhythm. Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata appeals to me, because it has various dynamic qualities and expressions with full of energy, surprise, despair, calamity, anxiety, and passion. Every part of this masterpiece, including the introduction, exposition, development, recapitulation, and coda, combines into a well-contrasting musical architecture. I truly, most of all, admire his unyielding spirit.
