The Genius of Beethoven

William Prinzing Briggs discusses the life and music of Ludwig van Beethoven, including his influence, the forms in which he wrote, and how he coped with going deaf. He makes specific points about Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto and the “Storm Movement” from his 6th Symphony, pieces performed in separate video segments in the Music Arts Toolkit.
