(The Key of) C Minor

Baton: tap. tap. *breathe*

Orchestra: Bum bum bum… bummm.

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.
