Difficult is closer to the truth

Listening to Orpheus (12)

What is a man required to give up to become eligible to dare the descent into the underworld and reemerge with something really new, radically different and groundbreaking ?

This is a full length movie exploring the story behind the symphony III (Eroica), Beethoven’s passion for his work, his unrequited love for an unattainable woman and the reactions and observations of those who are present.

Set against the revolutionary climate of the early 1800s, Beethoven – who is suffering from a gradual loss of hearing – confounds his audience by producing a score dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte (which he later retracts), which surpasses the old classical style of his contemporaries and introduces the new concept of a romantic style.

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.
