Ludwig van Beethoven towers as one of history's greatest composers. He triumphed over a total loss of hearing to write some of the most heroic, uplifting music the world has ever known. His repertoire includes nine symphonies, five piano concertos, one violin concerto, sixteen string quartets, and one opera.

Today is Beethoven's birthday! We're celebrating from 6 am to 6 pm with "Lots of Ludwig!" - including the glorious Symphony No. 9, and much more. It's 12 hours of must-listen radio! Join us.Watch and Listen: Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" performed by The Philadelphia Orchestra and the Westminster Choir
