OH, THE JOY!

No way can today’s girls and boys
Hear music that’s more than mere noise?
Then along comes Ludwig van B. —
Though deaf, his sound still resounds. See:

    I knew a euro bought more than a dollar, but I didn’t know it was quite so much more.

    Well said, Ricardo (the setting is Sabadell, Spain, on the occasion of the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell).

    Thank you so much for this uplifting clip. Beethoven, speaking through the decades- Magic! And how lovely to see a mass of people united in the enjoyment of his music.

    I got goosebumps the first time I watched this clip, and then I knew I had to compose a short poem to introduce it into a post.

    Nice poem Muse and a really nice film clip. But gee I sure hope these people get paid better for their next gig.

    I’m sure those musicians do what they do for love, Don – if they wanted to make money, they would become poets like me (believe that, and I’ll tell you another whopper).

    A note to Enigma (Superduque): Gracias for the “like.” I very much like your most recent post “Hay vida en Marte?”, but cannot find a way to click “like” on your post. This is just to let you know I tried.

  8. I got chills just from watching the video. You can see people’s faces light up as the individual musicians join in the performance. Beautiful.

    That’s the same reaction I had the first time I watched the video. I’ve probably watched it 4 or 5 times since then, and I react the same every time. The shared emotional involvement with everyone there grabs you and doesn’t let go.
