Dance and Beethoven: Dance Topics and Characteristics in Beethoven’s 3/4 Meter Movements of Instrumental Works

Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert all wrote dance music for balls in Vienna. However, from the dance perspective, Beethoven’s dance movements has not attracted much attention from scholars. I only focused on eight minuet movements of Beethoven piano sonatas in my MA dissertation, therefore the current proposed PhD research will expand the scope to include a wider range of 3/4 movements in Beethoven to explore that how Beethoven use dance topics and how these were combined with other styles or musical topics in unexpected ways.
