Should I just give this Web Site up? To Beethoven!

A friend of mine recently said, “I’m starting to wonder … why listen to anything else?!”

He meant Beethoven.

Now I find myself slipping into some similar  ‘Beethoven vortex!’

With 503 pieces in my library; (each movement counts as 1) –  I’m also starting to wonder: Why listen to anything else? His music just ‘does the job’. The job of touching head and heart, disturbing, uplifting and challenging one’s musical conceptualizations. I offer this piece up as an example of “Music at it’s Best”

So what do you reckon dear listeners? Would you still tune in to If all I played was the Big B?

here’s his String Quartet #16 the third movement

    I was about to agree with the above, until I scrolled down to another post that featured Puccini’s O mio babbino caro as the last piece…what is life without Puccini?! Sorry Jim, I love the big B, but nothing stirs my soul like Puccini.
