Beethovan Kruetzer Sonata Creative Writing Prompt
It was on this day in 1803 that Beethovan's Kruetzer Sonata was first performed. I hope you enjoy the video of Rachel Barton Pine playing this beautiful piece. Today's creative writing prompts are based on this peaceful music.
Free-Write Prompt: Try writing while the music is playing. Ride the notes and see where they take you.
Poetry Writing Prompt: First listen to the music and jot down a list of images and emotions that go through your mind as you listen. When you are finished, circle three things from your list and try writing a poem of 10 lines or less using the three things you circled from your list. Of course, you can use more than three if you would like.
Creative Nonfiction Prompt: Write about any memory you have about listening to music.
