The Genius of Beethoven

Recommended by my client. 

This extremely touching production by BBC traces Beethoven’s life along with music he produced. The docudrama format works brilliantly with superb casts, production designs and costumes. 
Charles Hazlewood also does an excellent job here as a presenter, guiding viewers through some compositional technicalities. You can see his admiration for the musician. 

Maybe it’s just me but, I can’t help but think about Van Gogh’s life every time I hear his music. 
It’s pointless to say what is my favourite Beethoven. There’re too many. Say, symphony for example. I really like No 2, 5, 6 and No 7, not so much No 9 ( I know it sounds sacrilegious). 

It’s 3 hours long but worth watching. You’ll be very inspired by his triumph.
