Beethoven (Part 2 of 18)

”Beethoven” (2005) Episode 1: “The Rebel” (Parts 1-6) Episode 2: “Love and Loss” (Parts 7-12) Episode 3: “Faith and Fury” (Parts 13-18) Part 1: Part 2: Part 3: Part 4: Part 5: Part 6: Part 7: Part 8: Part 9: Part 10: Part 11: Part 12: Part 13: Part 14: Part 15: Part 16: Part 17: Part 18: Runtime: 02:56:30 Description: A three-episode TV mini-series produced by the BBC, “Beethoven” is a very powerful and moving docudrama based on the life and music of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). Fantastically written and beautifully directed, the series constitutes a thorough and accurate reconstruction of Beethoven’s life, from his troubled childhood to his death at the age of 56. Paul Rhys’s masterful portrayal of Beethoven is particularly noteworthy, doing well to convey in vivid colour the natural genius of the Great Man and the isolation, turmoil and despair he experienced throughout his eventful life. Insightful narration from the popular conductor, composer and presenter Charles Hazlewood does well to add a sophisticated educational dimension to the series, as well as to encourage a seamless and comfortable flow of the story. This is an absolute must-watch! Director: Ursula Macfarlane Cast: Paul

    @drummerlead When Beethoven was a child he met and played for Mozart and Mozart in turn tried to purchase Beethoven from his father.

    @turxxx dude although im not a fan of classical music, i still really like this documentary you up-loaded, beethoven was one of the great classic composers, and like mozart he was very gifted for his age. Black metal music is more so my thing but still i like this documentary

    @drummerlead Mozart heard young Beethoven play and predicted, that the world hadnĀ“t heard the last of Ludwig.

    Chirping and blabbering is comfortable.
    Being co-genial is “almost artistic”. If we flung ourselves into honest artistic work, we might be exposed as less than mediocrities, and who would want that?
