read letters inspired by their segment on our film this week. Plus: The New Yorker asks if there's "too much Beethoven"--as if! The angle is musicians playing complete series of Ludwig, crowding out other good stuff.
Earlier: NPR's venerable "All Things Considered" came through with a cool segment on our Beethoven Ninth film last night. Nine full minutes on its "Call to Action," following the film from its inspiration to Japan, Chile and China and elsewhere and its social/political message of hope for all of us. Screening inquiries now pouring in from around the USA. And see my post on the film and our book and link to Bill Moyers' recent major segment. -- G.M.
