The song of the weekend: finishing the year in style

I've always loved this piece of music. And I have a weakness for this movie, about the life of its creator, Ludwig van. The way in which they show his suffering, his deafness, his aloofness, and the way this EPIC piece of music was received, even back then, brings tears to my eyes each time I watch it. It's a scene to watch with the volume at 11. (What happens at the end of the scene is a true story, by the way - he was as deaf as a doornail then, so it figures).

(Spoiler alert: it is a KEY scene of the movie. If you haven't seen it yet, SEE it, and then come and watch it).

Did you like it?
