Slide 1: Moonlight Sonata Based on a story narrated by the musician Enrique Baldovino North Pole Original PPS in Portuguese from Edison de Piracicaba - Brazil ( epiazza@terra.com.br ) Adapted and translated from Portuguese by: Pedro & Mila Ramos / Dowerglen, RSA – August/07 Music: Mondscheinesonate - Ludwig Van Beethoven Slide 2: Gate of Alcalá Madrid Who did not have in life moments of extreme pain? Who has never felt, at some moment in life, the desire to give up? Slide 3: Tower of Belem Lisbon Who has not yet felt lonely, extremely lonely, and had the sensation of having lost all hope? Slide 4: Notre Dame Paris Not even famous, rich, important people are exempt from having their moments of solitude and deep bitterness. Slide 5: It was exactly what happened with one of the most remarkable composers of all times, Ludwig Van Beethoven, who was born in 1770, in Bonn, Germany, and died in Vienna, Austria, in 1827. Slide 6: Rathaus Vienna Beethoven was going through one of these sorrowful, sombre and gloomy periods. He was very sad and depressed by the death of a German prince, who was his benefactor and as a second father to him. Slide 7: Brandenburg Gate Berlin The young composer suffered from a great lack of affection. His father was a drunkard who used to assault him physically. He died on the streets, due to alcoholism. Slide 8: His mother died very young. His biological brother never helped him and, on top of it all, he felt his illness was getting worse. Symptoms of deafness started to disturb him, leaving him nervous and irritable. Suleiman’s Mosque Istanbul Slide 9: Sacré Coeur Paris Beethoven could only hear using a kind of horn-shaped trumpet in his ear. He always carried with him a notebook, where people could write and so communicate with him. But they did not have patience for this, nor him to read their lips. Slide 10: Tower Bridge London Noticing that nobody understood and wanted to help him, Beethoven withdrew into himself and avoided people. Therefore he earned the fame of being a misanthrope. For all these reasons the composer fell into deep depression. He even prepared his will, saying that maybe it was better for him to commit suicide. Slide 11: Parliament Brussels But as no child of God is forgotten, the helping hand Beethoven needed came through a blind young woman who lived in the same boarding house where he had moved to, and who one night told him, shouting at his ears: “I would give everything to see the moonlight.” Slide 12: Church of Our Lady before Tyn Prague Listening to her, Beethoven was moved to tears. After all, he could see! After all, he could compose music and write it in paper! Slide 13: Cathedral Cologne A strong will to live came back to Beethoven and led him to compose one of the most beautiful pieces of music of all times: “Mondscheinsonate” – “Moonlight Sonata” . Slide 14: Parliament Budapest In its main theme, the melody imitates and resembles the slow steps of people, possibly of Beethoven himself and others, carrying the coffin of the German prince, his friend, patron and benefactor. Slide 15: Lisbon Looking at the silvery moonlit sky, and remembering the blind young woman, as asking the reasons for the death of his dear friend, he falls into deep and profound meditation. Slide 16: St. Peter’s Square Vatican Some music scholars say that the notes that repeat themselves, insistently, in the main theme of the 1º movement of the Sonata, might be the syllables of the words “Warum? Warum”? (Why? Why?) or another word in German of similar meaning. Slide 17: Coliseum Rome Years after having overcome his sorrow, suffering and pain, came the incomparable “Ode to Joy” from his “Ninth Symphony”, Beethoven’s magnum opus, which crowned the life work of this remarkable composer. He conducted the first performance himself in 1824, and by then being totally deaf, failed to hear the applause. Slide 18: St. Mark’s Square Venice One of the soloists gently turned him around, to see the hall full of a wildly cheering, applauding, and hat-waving audience. It is said the “Ode to Joy” expresses Beethoven’s gratitude to life and to God, for not having committed suicide. Slide 19: Acropolis Athens And all this thanks to that blind young woman, who inspired in him the desire to translate, in musical notes, a moonlit night: rays of moonlight weaving themselves in the sweet strains of a wondrously beautiful melody. Slide 20: St. Basil’s Cathedral Kremlin - Moscow Using his sensibility, Beethoven, the composer who could not hear, portrayed, through his beautiful melody, the beauty of a night bathed by the moonlight, for a girl who could not see it with her physical eyes.
