It’s 186 years since Beethoven died, and 209 years since he wrote the piece in this video, the Waldstein Sonata op 53.

If you’ve wandered onto this site, and don’t already know why Beethoven was and is one of the greatest creative minds in history, as well as  a remarkable human being, then try this. Claudio Arrau was an old school pianist in every sense, but a fantastic musician. This video is of very high quality, unlike a lot of music on YouTube.

It’s just one facet of course, of the brilliance of Beethoven.

Contemporary forever
