about the Course
Very few of us ever have the chance to change the world, but Ludwig van Beethoven did just that -- and not just musically. Beethoven's 57 years spanned eras of lasting change, from the Enlightenment of his childhood, through the Age of Revolution of his youth, on to the Napoleonic Age of his maturity, and finally the post-Congress of Vienna Europe of his old age. He redefined how we think of the artist in society, and left a legacy of masterworks that remain at the apex of musical creation to this day. We'll cover Beethoven, Beethoven, and more Beethoven in our eight weeks, as much as time will allow.
