Happy 251st Birthday, Maestro Beethoven

Born today Ludwig Beethoven

With passion and power his symphonies were woven.

The joyful Ninth, the spirited Third.

The Fifth’s dun-dun-dun-dunn I’m sure you’ve heard.

  • Beautifully done, AW! I love the picture, too.

  • Yep, three Gs and an E flat. Happy birthday, Ludwig. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=leonard+bernstein+on+beethoven+5th+symphony&docid=608032812254367871&mid=4B56D76324CE238CE52B4B56D76324CE238CE52B&view=detail&FORM=VIRE

    Oops! Doesn't look like the URL I tried to send will work. If it doesn't, search for Leonard Bernstein on Beethoven for a very interesting project from 1954. I hope you like it.

    URL worked fine. I wasn't expecting a lecture, but it was annotated with music.

    Thanks for the report. I couldn't get it to work on my machine. I'm glad you did. I felt like the musical interruptions kept it from feeling like a lecture.
