Composer of the Week - Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) - Episode 2


Donald Macleod explores the music of Beethoven's last 12 years. Including a seven-bar fugue for two violins, a miniature set of variations on a Scottish folksong and, at the other end of the scale, Beethoven's last, and some would say greatest, piano sonata.
