Ludwig van The Man
just posted that more or less agrees with my longtime claim that Beethoven is the greatest artist in the West at least since Shakespeare. He asserts this while commenting on several recent books and even a novel. All well and good, except he fails to mention, to be immodest, the acclaimed current doc directed by Kerry Candaele (which I co-produced) and our related book, Journeys With Beethoven. Both fit very well in his take on Beethoven cultural and political import and universal embrace today.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
