    Wonderful interview. Putting Ludwig in context of his time/era (particularly Ludwig’s admiration for French Revolutionary music) is SO important for full understanding and our admiration. In contemporary terms, like The Beatles without mention of Elvis Presley, or for that matter the songs sung to or heard by Lennon and McCartney by their parents and family. I wait anxiously for Part 2.
