212 years ago, on December 22, 1808 Ludwig van Beethoven put on a benefit concert for himself. It was his last public performance as a pianist with orchestra. The concert included all new music by Beethoven and lasted 4 hours, from 6:30 PM until 10:30 PM.
Join Jonathan Palevsky and me for a musical re-creation of LVB’s “Monster Concert” in length, not in temperature. We also hope to raise money for WBJC in the amount of $5,000. Since this year marks Beethoven’s 250th birthday anniversary, we thought it would be fun to double that amount and add an extra 0.
Thank you for your contribution at wbjc.com which makes Beethoven’s music possible on this radio station.
