Next Tuesday afternoon (Ist October) BBC Radio 4 are broadcasting a play at 2.15pm (GMT) called:
"The Listening Heart - Beethoven in Crisis, Summer 1802" by David Constantine.
It's 45 minutes long and, from what I can gather, contains only two other characters besides B., a Juliet and a Casimir. (Those names don't ring a bell with me so we may have another "Immortal Beloved" on our hands).
Anyway, you have been warned.

Interesting that someone is actually marking this event - the Heiligenstadt testament was written 200 years ago on Oct 6th. I shall be listening to radio 4!

That's right! I never made the connection. I wonder are there any other commemorations anywhere?

Yes, that's right that on 6 Oct. it will be 200 years sice Beethoven wrote his moving Heiligenstadt Testament. Since the house where he wrote this is just up the street from me, I plan to make a special visit there on 6 Oct. I'm curious to see if there will be a special commeration of this date at the small museum in Beethoven's old flat. I will let you all know what happens, if anything, on 6 Oct.

Just for clarification - there is a member Andrea plus another member whose name is also Andrea but who chose the username 'Hollywoodborn' becuase 'Andrea' was already taken -- and you BOTH live in Beethoven's old district in Vienna?

Chaszz, yes I am THE Andrea that lives in Heiligenstadt and I also go by the name "Hollywoodborn" in the Beethoven chat room. This is the only forum that I use my real first name of Andrea. http://www.gyrix.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Where I live in Phoenix my classical radio station is having a lot of Beethoven's music playing that day. I'm sure they'll add some stories about him as well. After listening to the Beethoven radio program let us know how it was for all us unfortunates who can't listen to it.

No such unfortunates! BBC Radio 4 is available live on the internet. Just use google.com and type 'BBC radio 4' into the search box and it will take you there.

Hi Chaszzz,

GMT is 8 hrs. ahead of Phoenix which is 3 hrs. behind of the eastern coast (I believe you and I are 3 hrs. difference). So you in New York should be 5 hrs. behind of GMT. (If you're totally confused at this point don't worry, so am I and it gets worse). 1 to 3pm your time is 10:00am to 12:00pm my time. When I'm in the chat room it's usually between 11:00am and 1:00pm Phoenix time. No one's been in there anyway for quite some time, I think, so this is all irrelavent. http://www.gyrix.com/ubb/smile.gif

Thanks. I was thinking that myself. But if it's on at 2:15pm GMT time (here's that time thing again) then it would be awfully early here for me. I shall maybe have to drag myself out of bed for that one.
