Sleeping Beauty

One afternoon I opened the entrance door of a rather dilapidated looking building, a few blocks down the road from where I live. I entered into an enchanted courtyard. This is where Beethoven composed his 3rd symphony (called ‘Eroica’) in the summer of 1803. Somehow time has forgotten this place. I sometimes go there to listen to Beethoven’s spirit that still lingers in the air.  I never really understood his music – but now I can feel each stroke and it makes my heart dance.

Here are my own impressions from a couple of days ago:

( Music: Sonata for violin & piano No. 7 in C Minor (“Eroica”) Op. 30/2: II. Adagio Cantabile, L v Beethoven (D Barenboim, Pinchas Zuckermann)

Music with Passion

Beethoven Symphony No.3 ‘Eroica’ Mov.4 – Herbert v Karajan, Berliner Philharmoniker

Eroica House in Vienna

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
