Here we are, halfway through the 30 Day Music Challenge. And we come to one of the giants in Western music, Ludwig van Beethoven.
I love the intensity of his music. There is so much passion and life and feeling in his music. Of all his works, Symphony No. 7 is my favorite.
Bernstein & Beethoven Together At Last
Here is Leonard Bernstein conducting the Vienna Philharmonic in 1978 – Movement II of Symphony No. 7.
Some of Beethoven’s greatest hits include: Symphony No. 5, probably his most well-known with its 4-note “Fate knocking at the door” entrance; Fur Elise, one of the first ringtones created; Symphony No. 9; Moonlight Sonata for piano; and so many more.
