We’ll present Beethoven’s greatest symphonies, sonatas, concertos and more.

William Woltz, Music Director for WCPE, TheClassicalStation.org, announces WCPE’s annual three-day salute to Ludwig van Beethoven, the monumental composer from Bonn, whose belief in the power of music empowered him to triumph over personal tragedy.

“We’ll present Beethoven’s greatest symphonies, sonatas, concertos and more,” offers Woltz. “We culminate in the glorious Ninth Symphony on the presumed day of his birth (December 16) at 8:00 p.m.”
