Never too old to learn

I’m a bit bowled over by this.    Today I decided I was in the mood for some Beethoven piano concertos….. Heck, if you’d asked I’d have answered that I’ve listened to them all countless times over the years.      So I put on his Choral Fantasia, which I happened to have on MP3.

And suddenly found myself listening to the chorals for his 9th Symphony.

Probably all of you already knew those stupendous 9th Symphony chorals had their beginnings in a piano concerto.

Well I sure as hell didn’t!

  3. No music on Earth is as inspiring as Beethoven’s Ninth. IMO
