Beethoven is considered as a pioneer of Romanism. With his sonatas for violin, composed between 1797 and 1812, he was following his role model Mozart, who recognized the violin as an equal partner for the piano for the first time. Furthermore, Beethoven’s sonata are known for their unconventional modulations and rhythms, which first shocked the audience, but after a while it was seen as the own course of the great classic artist.
