Argument to Beethoven’s 5th

A lit­tle piece of clas­sic Amer­i­cana TV. We take you back to the 1950s and Sid Cae­sar’s com­ic work. It’s hard to imag­ine some­one work­ing Beethoven’s 5th into com­ic mate­r­i­al, but Cae­sar did it. In the mean­time, if you want some­thing a lit­tle more seri­ous, I give you this rare footage of Her­bert von Kara­jan con­duct­ing the same sym­pho­ny in 1966. An old gem. Last­ly, get lots of free clas­si­cal music from our Music Pod­cast Col­lec­tion.
