Seventh Heaven: 200 Years On

A true red letter day in music history today.  It was 200 years ago on this date that Beethoven's epic Symphony No. 7 debuted in Vienna, at benefit for widows and children of war victims.   Here's a rarely heard piano version (transcribed by LvB's biggest, Liszt) of the slow movement, followed by the rock 'n roll closing movement in one of its finest performances.  And if you've, our new film and book on Ludwig's Ninth. (h/t Barbara Bedway)
