Playing some classical music along with everything else in the late 60s and early 70s was something that just happened along with all kinds of whimsical station breaks with out takes from movies from the 30s and 40s on Philadelphia earliest FM stations that played album music.  WDAS and WMMR FM the early underground radio stations played whatever they felt like, with lots of the album music not heard on the  AM power hit stations.  RP has that same feel, the eclectic all good sounds of music from all over the place by Bill and Rebecca who have an ear for the newer stuff that I haven't a clue about.   At this point, I try not to complain but enjoy the music and the fact I am still alive at all to hear it.   And yes, Beethoven holds a place for me, my high school girl friend was a great piano student and played Beethoven piano pieces for me that astounded me for her talent and for this music from the great composer that I then could understand why his name was held in awe and respect.  This really is my radio paradise{#Heartkiss}

Piano Lessons peaked at learning this piece :).  There must be an Angela Hewitt version out there...
And there it is...the Piece de Resistance! My all time favourite classical piece! Again, thank you Bill <3

Beutiful masterpiece but isn't there a better quality version out there?
 
Yes. Fixed.
My mother was playing "Lettre à Elise" at home when I was younger... Good remenber !{#Notworthy}
Since it's already the 17th in Asia ... Happy Birthday, Ludwig Von!
I love it when my fiance plays this on her piano.
And, to this day, nobody really knows who Elise was; perhaps better that way since Ludvig wrote better music as a bachelor anyway.

Beethoven?!? I thought Jimmy Page wrote this!
 

  No.  Page stole the riff.


Talented little dude Bill?  Well put.

When my parents thought I had talent, I had to practice this so much.  Thankfully they came to their senses.

True and whilst today they die of drugs, he died of Syphillis! What a way to go!
I could be wrong but I don't think Beethoven made this recording
