Copying Beethoven

I just watched a fantastic movie called Copying Beethoven. The music alone will bring you to tears.

It is a fictionalized account of Beethoven's last days and his "copyist" who wrote down the notes for his Ninth Symphony.

The vibrations on the air are the breath of God speaking to man's soul. Music is the language of God. We musicians are as close to God as man can be. We hear his voice, we read his lips, we give birth to the children of God, who sing his praise. That's what musicians are.

God whispers into the ears of some men, but he shouts into mine!
