Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 10 in G Major, Op. 96

Sonata No. 10 in G major, Op. 96 is a composition for violin and piano that Ludwig van Beethoven created in 1812, in parallel with his Seventh Symphony and a decade after the "Kreutzer" Sonata. This significant passage of time explains the distinct contrast in spirit between these two pieces. While Sonata No. 9 embodied the "agitation" that consumed Beethoven's heart, the composer breathed life into his most enchanting violin sonata a decade later. Brimming with "exquisite tranquility and delicate beauty," the piece opens with a violin trill, which has become the hallmark of one of the most splendid violin sonatas ever written.

Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 10 in G Major, Op. 96 was composed by Beethoven 10 years after Sonata No. 9, and it feels like it belongs to a different realm, given the stark differences in spirit and musicality between the two works. Their structure also sets them apart, with Sonata No. 10 being a four-movement sonata, composed of: 1. Allegro moderato, 2. Adagio espressivo, 3. Scherzo. Allegro, 4. Poco Allegretto (in contrast to Sonata No. 9, "Kreutzer Sonata," which has only three movements). Notably, the final movement was written in the style of Pierre Rode, who performed the violin part during the premiere of Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 10 in G Major, Op. 96. In this regard, Beethoven explained, "I did not infuse too much fervor into the last movement due to considerations of punctuality and especially because I had to consider Rode's manner of playing. While we enjoy rapid and resonant passages in our finales, Rode disapproves of them, somewhat restricting me." Consequently, the final movement consists of seven variations followed by a brief coda based on a joyful theme.
