C SHARP MINOR
c.1784 – C.F.D. Schubart
Penitential lamentation, intimate conversation with God…; sighs of disappointed friendship and love lie in its radius.
1792 – Justin Heinrich Knecht
1827 – J.A. Schrader
A depraved, insane mind and despair are expressed by the sharp sounds of this key.
1830 – G.F. Ebhardt
1835 – August Gathy
Serious, intimate conversation, sighs of disappointed friendship and love. [Now where have I read that before?]
1837 – Ferdinand Hand
Melancholy, sighing longing, lament over one’s sins, but also heartfelt pity. Beethoven wrote the Fantasy Op.27 No.2 [‘Moonlight’ Sonata] in this key…every listener is inwardly moved and exalted.
1843 – Hector Berlioz
Tragic, sonorous, elegant.
2011 – Tim Minchin
Profound, deep; the dark side. A dark red colour (thank you Wookie).
