Happy Beethoven's Birthday!

Yes, today is a day to luxuriate in great music and to thank God that you can hear it. (g)

So a toast of mead (or German beer of choice) to Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827), born this day 132 years ago to two parents who had no idea what a handful their child would turn out to be.

from 1980, up until about 1990, when I discovered Hildegard of Bingen, Beethoven was my favorite musician. Now, he's my second-favorite. But he lost out to the best possible competition. (g)
