I just l istened to Andre Reiu and his orc estra playing and singing Ode to Jo y. I found myself in tears at he beauty of this piece written by a man sl owly going deaf. This is m y o inon of course but its sheer beauty that piece and the orchestra and singers performed it magnificently. This composition never fails to move me when I hear it well played. Im a lover of Beethovens best ,,music and I have also sung this in our choir too. I love the best in classcal music.

You can hear "Ode to Joy" played backward at Beetoven's grave. They say it is the sound of him decomposing.

I love Beethoven and I like André Rieu, but I prefer Beethoven played by other orchestras.

@Hatley Beethoven was a German composer and his music are best played by a German orchestra.
