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.

On December 16th from 6 am to 6 pm, tune in to hear your favorite works by Beethoven on his birthday, including the glorious Symphony No. 9 at noon, piano sonatas, violin sonatas, and less-frequently heard vocal and choral works, concertos, and overtures. It's "Lots of Ludwig" for 12 hours! Please join us.Watch and Listen: Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8, Pathetique, second movement, performed by pianist Freddy Kempf
