Beethoven – 245 years ago

Today we celebrate one of the greatest composers to ever live, Ludwig van Beethoven. He was born 245 years ago today. I play several of his pieces, and have even sung to Ode to Joy (in German) while being conducted by the Ben Zander, the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra. I am sure you know his music, but if not look out for the Moonlight Sonata, or Symphany #5 or #9.

When we were in Vienna last year I made a pilgrimage to visit his grave in the Central Cemetery in Vienna.
