“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.” – Ludwig Van Beethoven.
Tis Beethoven’s 251st birthday today, December 16th
Just a few of the many magnificent creations from, in my opinion, the greatest of composers:
Beethoven: Turkish March from ‘The Ruins of Athens’, Carlos Kalmar – RTVE Orchestra
Valentina Lisitsa – Moonlight Sonata, Opus 27, No. 2 – Beethoven
And closing with the most sublime, the most enchanting, the most beautiful of all:
Beethoven Symphony No. 9 – Mvt. 3 – Barenboim/West-Eastern Divan Orchestra
