The Violin Sonata No. 5 in F major, Opus 24, is a violin sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven. It is often known as the "Spring" sonata, and was published in 1801. Its dedicatee was Count Moritz von Fries, a patron[1] to whom the fourth violin sonata, the string quintet of the same year, and the seventh symphony were also dedicated.

The work is in four movements:

  1. Allegro
  2. Adagio molto espressivo
  3. Scherzo: Allegro molto
  4. Rondo: Allegro ma non troppo

The Scherzo and its trio are particularly brief. The entire sonata takes approximately 22 minutes to perform.

The Adagio movement is featured in stage show "Fame".


  1. ^ Fries was also a travelling companion to Giovanni Battista Casti, a playwright and rival of Lorenzo da Ponte, and an influence on Mozart at a pivotal point in his operatic work, according to Alfred Einstein's Mozart: His Character, His Work.
