It’s another Friday, so let’s enjoy more fruits from the cultural tree of the West that keeps on giving. Not one of this most popular pieces, but Beethoven’s Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano in C major is a real treasure. Enjoy folks.
Referencing Napoleon in my last post inspired me to post Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony. Rumored to be originally dedicated to Napoleon until he made himself emperor, it is a titan of a work and a crowning achievement of Western culture. Here’s Leonard Bernstein conducting the New York Philharmonic, and for a great little additional feature also linked to a breakdown of this with Bernstein explaining in more detail. Truly a great listen.
