With a narrative spanning several generations, Hershey Felder combines his acting, piano and musical analytical skills to bring to life the character of Ludwig van Beethoven as he existed through the eyes of one who knew him well. Featuring some of Beethoven's most famous works, including "Moonlight" Sonata, "Pathetique" Sonata, selections from Beethoven's Symphonies Nos. 5 and 9, the Grosse Fugue, as well as a movement of Beethoven's great "Emperor" Concerto, Beethoven, As I Knew Him is a journey through time that will bring audiences closer to the genius of maestro Ludwig van Beethoven himself.
