Abstract

Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony (Fate) is one of his the most outstanding representative works which expresses Beethoven's unbending spirit of life long struggle with the fate. From the angle of improving college students’ aesthetic quality, with music pedagogy, psychology, philosophy and aesthetics as the theoretical support, with common college students as the research object, this thesis aims at analyzing mental connotation of Beethoven's fifth symphony (fate), in order to enlighten contemporary college students to explore life philosophy and to set up the correct outlook on life and values. Beethoven’s “Fifth Symphony “(Fate) in C minor(hereinafter referred to as “Destiny Symphony”), is a sign that music turns from entertainment to the sublime in the period of classical time. This symphony not only dominates the music creation and music thoughts in the 19th century, but also produces profound impact on the social change of that era. Beethoven’s symphony and Beethoven’s spirit’s inheritance and teaching have an important significance on enriching the spiritual world of contemporary college students and helping them set up the correct outlook on life and values. How to grasp the contemporary college students’ thoughts, psychological characteristics and music accomplishment is the core problem we should solve in music appreciation class teaching. By music expression forms of Beethoven’s Destiny Symphony, we try to reveal deeply its spiritual connotation to inspire college students’ understanding of life philosophy.
