Musical selection dedicated to the 250th birth anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven

My willingness to serve poor, suffering humanity with my art has never,
since childhood,  neded any reward other than inner contentment ...

L. Beethoven

“True art is imperishable,” Ludwig van Beethoven once said. This statement also applies to his music. He was a humanist, a venturing outside the box person, a musical clairvoyant, up to the present day; he is one of the most performed composers in the world. The 250th anniversary of the composer is celebrated by the entire world – the 2020th has been declared the year of the great composer.

For thousands of people, Beethoven remains not only one of the greatest genius of all times, but he is the personification of an unfading ethical ideal, an inspirer of the oppressed, a comforter of the afflicted, a faithful friend in sorrow and joy.

The museum Musical Library features several dozens of musical media with the Beethoven compositions, including piano sonatas (Op. 2, Op.10, Op.14, Op. 27, Op. 31, Op. 49, Op. 90, Op. 101), "Pathetic", Piano Concerto No. 5 in E Flat Major, Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 9 in A major (The Kreutzer Sonata), symphonies No. 3, 5, 7 and many others.

For the prominent classical composer jubilee we prepared a musical selection recorded on the reproducing piano “Steinway Duo-Art” (1926) from the music records stored in our Musical library  - paper music rolls “Duo Art”.
