From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Portrait of Beethoven in 1815, by Joseph Willibrord Mähler, two years after the premiere of his 7th Symphony

The Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92, is a symphony in four movements composed by Ludwig van Beethoven between 1811 and 1812, while improving his health in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice. The work is dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries.

At its première, Beethoven was noted as remarking that it was one of his best works. The second movement, Allegretto, was the most popular movement and had to be encored. The instant popularity of the Allegretto resulted in its frequent performance separate from the complete symphony.[1]

DON’T EVEN ATTEMPT TO LEARN EVERYTHING BE HEART: THE REAL SKILL OF A UNIVERSITY GRADUATE, IS… TO BE ABLE TO TAP INTO THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE, TO KNOW WHERE TO GO FOR INFORMATION, AND HOW TO MAKE IT USER FRIENDLY”. ALways can visit a library. for instance visit this one:

The Library Of Congress Online: 
http://catalog.loc.gov/,

I mean I was able to find telephone books from Romania, from 1925, and 1958; I was able to find my address and telephone number, and my great grand parents business, adresses, etc. One can find, that which one is searching for: literally.          

 

Well in those times we were talking libraries, today we’re talking virtual libraries: Create one of your own: Start today, start now, by adding this acronym finder and acronym attic list to your new library, of your congress, of your choice:
