MassArt Student Artwork inspired by Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.

A collection of artworks inspired by the 7th Symphony.

Here is one I especially liked:

When listening to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, I was moved by the piece’s fluid movement and rapid ups and downs. The second movement reminded me of the ocean. While listening, images of smooth rolling tides and giant crashing waves filled my mind. Its unpredictability was that of a storm. In the midst of my research on Beethoven himself, I found a quote that inspired my image further: “Tones sound, and roar, and storm about me until I have to set them down into notes.”
