Happy Birthday, Beethoven!
Friday, May 22, 2020 by Michael Power | Podcasts
A 250 year old Sagittarian from Bonn, Germany, Beethoven is not only one of the worlds greatest composers, he is my favourite composer. He is dramatic, introspective, fun and cheeky. This year there will be (isolated) celebrations all around the world celebrating his 250th birthday (16th December), so its a great opportunity to learn a little bit about this classical music rockstar.
Author, comedian and all-round great guy, David Walliams does it best in his Classical Music Podcast - Episode 7. It's a great one to share in as a family at home or in the car, for all and any ages, and they are around 15 minutes each in length.
There are little inside jokes from each, so it's worth going back and listening from Episode 1 over time.
Happy Birthday. Happy Friday. Happy Practicing.
