Just to correct any impression that all I watch on TV is oddball sports, there was a fantastic performance of Beethoven’s 9th symphony on the Swedish cultural channel that I happened to see. Some orchestra from Paris with a wild eyed conductor who did a fabulous job. It was as good as when we saw it live in San Francisco a couple years ago. The end gives me chills, even watching on TV with a dog in my lap, who apparently is into Beethoven.
The weather today was made for Beethoven.
