Japanese Love Affair with Beethoven
Dearly Beloved is a film about the life of Ludwig van Beethoven who was born in 1770 in Germany. Part of his life was lived as a deaf composer who was the predominant musical figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras.
Still loved today, I find the following video most interesting as the Japanese have also “fallen in love” with the music of Beethoven. Maybe this is an understatement as we hear over 10,000 Japanese musicians perform.
