the simple life

"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The Beethoven Experience

Cinnamon Akasaka, my favourite character in The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, listens to classical music.

"One week he would listen to nothing but Rossini's sacred music, and another week Vivaldi's concertos for wind instruments, repeating them so often that I ended up memorizing the melodies."

They don't have Rossini and Vivaldi but the BBC is serving up The Beethoven Experience. For 7 days only, Symphony no.6 & Symphony no.7 are available for download. I already missed out 1-5 so don't delay.

(Updated, first july: no.8 and no.9 available)
