A very hot day in Bonn, sitting just outside the room in which Beethoven was born. The last time anyone sat here and played was 61 years ago when Pablo Casals played. I performed the Beethoven Romance in F and a piece I wrote, Hochzeitsmelodie #1 for violin, Recorder and Harp. The people at Beethoven – Haus are first rate and the director, Dr. Michael Ladenburger is a gentleman extroidinaire! This was an experience of a lifetime! The room in which he was born is just over my head on the third floor.
