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.
