I shy away from writing posts about the classical greats like Beethoven because I know nothing about them or the music and am very likely to embarrass myself. So it’s like somebody who doesn’t follow baseball writing about Ruth or Aaron. It doesn’t make sense.
Nonetheless, the music is quite beautiful. Above is Für Elise played by Valentina Lisitsa — who is greeted like a rock star when she walks on stage — and the Seoul Philharmonic. Below is the First Movement of The Moonlight Sonata played by Wilhelm Kempff.
For those who like the big stuff, here is a link to The Fifth Symphony, which is so famous that even I can identify it. This performance is by the New York Philharmonic conducted by Kurt Masur.
Check out Beethoven and a ton of great music, regardless of era or genre, at The Daily Music Break. The site is all over the map because that’s where the talent is.
