Happy Belated Birthday Beethoven!
Well I’m a day late, but I’m a mom with a 7 year old who has been on virtual school since November 16. Yesterday was the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. The year 2020 was so unbelievable with the Covid-19 pandemic cancelling many performances, including some of my own. I was fortunate this summer to record the first of my three CD’s of the Beethoven Diabelli Variations Op. 120.
Yet there were many virtual concert celebrations around the world despite the pandemic and I have a feeling we will be hearing some previously scheduled in person concerts after 2020 is over as well. Since it’s very close to the holidays, I want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday however you celebrate, and here’s looking to the year 2021 with new hope.
