Ode to Joy

From Immortal Beloved, the movie.  If you haven’t seen it, you must.  This is my favorite clip.  Perfect for this time of year.  Or any time of year.

To think that Beethoven was deaf when he composed such exquisite music!  I can’t get over that.

    Thanks for sharing Elissa. I have a CD that Steven recorded where he was playing 3 trumpet parts to Ode to Joy. He was really a good trumpet player.
