So apparently Beethoven’s 250th birthday is this year, which is certainly something to celebrate. Unfortunately, nobody knows his exact birthdate. Which means we can just freestyle it all year long!
This weekend, the Nashville Symphony is throwing a birthday party for Beethoven, and I’m going, and I’m looking forward to hearing some of this composer’s most famous work. Up top is one of the pieces on the program, Symphony No. 3 in E flat major.
So much to savor here. What is it about seeing a group of exquisite musicians all working together to such a glorious end?
