Ex. 19

At bar 396 of the Poco andante, the winds come to the front with an exquisite passage for the clarinets, bassoons and oboes.  In it, Beethoven juxtaposes sixteenth notes against sixteenth triplets. Example 19b illustrates the effect thus achieved by isolating the clarinets.  Click here for example 19b.
