Violin Sonata No. 5 (Beethoven)

The Violin Sonata No. 5 in F major, Opus 24, is a violin sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven. It is often known as the "Spring" sonata, and was published in 1801. Its dedicatee was Count Moritz von Fries, a patron [Fries was also a travelling companion to Giovanni Battista Casti, a playwright and rival of Lorenzo da Ponte, and an influence on Mozart at a pivotal point in his operatic work, according to Alfred Einstein's "Mozart: His Character, His Work".] to whom the fourth violin sonata, the string quintet of the same year, and the seventh symphony were also dedicated.

The work is in four movements:

#"Allegro"
#"Adagio molto espressivo"
#"Scherzo: Allegro molto"
#"Rondo: Allegro ma non troppo"

The Scherzo and its trio are particularly brief (and as pointed out [http://www.musicweb.uk.net/classrev/2003/Apr03/Beethoven_sonatas_Kreisler.htm here] the scherzo is canonic).

Its Adagio movement is feature in the hit stage show of "Fame".

The work takes approximately 23 minutes to perform.
