Ludwig van The Man

Major new piece by Alex Ross at The New Yorker 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.
