The Beethoven polonaise is one of the most famous and most popular piano sheet music pieces from Beethoven. It was written circa 1809 and published in 1812. Beethoven originally wrote a set of six bagatelles, Op. 33 and Beethoven decided to make more out of the pieces by stringing them together into a free-standing piece of music, which is what evolved into Beethoven’s polonaise. The work consists of three major parts: an opening section (Presto), a slow intermezzo, and a final section (Allegro molto). Beethoven is said to have been inspired in the creation of this piece by Polish events. Beethoven was a great admirer and supporter of the ideals behind the French Revolution, so he was naturally very sympathetic towards Poland’s struggle for freedom against Napoleon’s forces.
