Beethoven and God….
I’ve always thought of Beethoven’s having a God’s-eye view of humanity. Heroism, grief, humor, gruffness, refinement—they all seem to reside side-by-side and segue one into the other with no warning or apology. Perhaps his music brings us a unique comfort because it “gets” us and allows us to be what we are.

Brahms and God….
In him are all the voices of our musical past, but reframed, reimagined, recreated. His rhythm, his unceasing melodic development---force us beyond our expectations and beyond our comfort zones. He is the great transformer.
