Words from the mind of Ludwig van Beethoven:
What you are, you are by accident of birth; what I am, I am by myself. There are and will be a thousand princes; there is only one Beethoven.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music is the wine which inspires one to new generative processes, and I am Bacchus who presses out this glorious wine for mankind and makes them spiritually drunken.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears form the eyes of woman.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Tones sound, and roar and storm about me until I have set them down in notes.
Inspired by one of my favourite composition: Moonlight Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven.
Fact you probably don’t care about and you probably don’t read my rambles…but I’ll tell you anyway. 😄
Beethoven never titled this piece Moonlight Sonata. The original title was ‘Sonata quasi una fantasia’, which is damn, a whole mouthful to us normal human. The title Moonlight Sonata was given by another Ludwig (a Rellstab this time) who thought that the first movement of the sonata reminded him of the movement of moonlight’s reflection upon Lake Lucerne.
I suppose Ludwigs in general are whimsical people. 🙂
