“The Battles of Beethoven” with Nancy Padgett
Have you ever known or worked with an “impossible genius”? If so, you know something of Ludwig van Beethoven. In this lecture, we’ll look at the “Battles”—Love, Money, War, and Health—that so vexed him all his life. And vexed others, who considered him a “genius” but sighed constantly and in vain over his “impossible” personality. Musical snippets from his opera “Leonora/ Fidelio,” the Piano Sonata “Les Adieux,” and his orchestral piece “Wellington’s Victory” will perk up your ears and have you humming the rest of the day.
