Beethoven's Blog

And what if Beethoven had a blog? Would he proselytize for the optimum precise number of coffee beans to grind in order to achieve the perfect cup? (Yes, he did this in real life!) Would he rail against a proposed development seeking to build new homes on his favorite pathway through the woods? Would he seek to improve his cooking by taking an adult education class at the local university? Would he compose variations on a theme by Laura Nyro? Would he incorporate tabla rhythms into a work for piano?
