Schindler: “Thus Fate knocks…”
Written for Haiku Horizons, 7/31. This week’s prompt was “key.” I chose to write about the power and influence a musical key can have over our emotions. Had Beethoven not chosen C Minor, would his 5th symphony have had the lasting fame that it has enjoyed?
“Thus Fate knocks…” is part of a quote from Anotn Schindler, Beethoven’s secretary, discussing the meaning behind the well known opening musical phrase of the 5th symphony.
