Happy Birthday Mr. Beethoven!

Here, once again, a link to my favorite classical music station (online) for any who would like to join in the birthday celebration...

17 Dec, not 15. And me too. Second only to JSB. Or perhaps on a par.

Look at the heading in my post, mack/misophist.

At any rate, they are not certain whether it is the 16th or the 17th, and being the illustrious occasion it is, I like to celebrate on both days, beginning at midnight on the 16th.

I have the original 19th century lithograph of Beethoven in his study.
It is an inspiration to this day.

An interesting fact is that Beethoven did not know until he was in his 30s that he had been born in 1770. He thought he had been born in 1772. This is because his father, anxious to have a child prodigy who might gain fame and fortune comparable to Mozart's, told everyone that his son Ludwig was two years younger than he actually was, in hopes that they would be even more impressed with his keyboard abilities.

Of course, once you've passed the age of 200, a two-year difference doesn't look like much.

His (9th symphony) simplicity made grand and infinite like a mandelbrot equation is forever a fractal masterpiece of mankind.

And all this after a tragic reaction to lead poisoning 30 years earlier.

We had a party, complete with cake, once in the Student Union at college. Everyone thought we were nuts.

Hey, you! Lewd! Have a good one, even though you're dead!

Our cake was in the shape of a concert grand piano. Most folks didn't understand what was going on.

Other traditional Beethoven's Birthday foods for me are saffron rice and green beans with red wine sauce. We're having those today.

Happy Other Beethoven's Birthday!

Cotswold morris dancers (well this ex-one anyway) will tell you that Idbury Hill gets a real lift from being danced to the "Ode to Joy", or to Freedom if you prefer.

The trick is to start off normally, then bring it in aroumd the 2nd or 3rd chorus, just when the dancers begin to flag a little. Ooh, my knees!

I too have one... bought it about 17 years ago. Any idea who the artist was? Any idea how much it is worth?

One interesting fact about Beethoven....he never did in fact roll over. A popular misconception.
