Hooray for Beethoven Day!

The pleasure in Beethoven birthday tributes.

Happy Birthday Dear Ludwig — American concert pianist and composer Leonid Hambro wrote a wonderful set of five variations on “Happy Birthday To You” in the style of famous Beethoven pieces.  See if you can identify them all!

I’ll give you a hint:  Minuet in G, Sonata Pathétique, Moonlight Sonata, Für Elise, and the Fifth Symphony.

Beethoven Day — You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.  Thanks to the writers of the Peanuts musical comedy for this celebratory number!  The pleasure in birthday sing-alongs.

Monty Python’s Flying Circus — Beethoven versus the Mynah Bird, his wife, and the universe.
