Quite imperceptibly the “Creditor of Kings” has become the King of Creeds, and we really cannot take this monarch’s pleading for emancipation as otherwise than uncommonly naïve, seeing that it is much rather we who are shifted into the necessity of fighting for emancipation from the Jews. According to the present constitution of this world, the Jew in truth is already more than emancipate: he rules, and will rule, so long as Money remains the power before which all our doings and our dealings lose their force.

– Richard Wagner, Judaism in Music, 1850

The ‘Irascible’ Ludwig Van Beethoven

This is Robert Lloyd’s first show with The White Network. He starts out with a bang and the life story of maybe the greatest composer in the history of music. The first few minutes Robert introduces himself and gives us some perspective on who he is and where he has come from musically and then works into the life of Beethoven.

Some of the highlights from the show are:

*The prodigy and his promotion by his father.

*Early family tragedies and losing his parents early in life.

*His personal relationships (or lack thereof) and failure in romance.

*Becoming the first ‘rock star’ in history.

*His writing of politically oriented music.

*The three phases of Beethoven’s musical life and his greatest compositions.

Robert plays parts (snips) of several of Beethoven’s greatest musical numbers and we are treated to the “Moonlight Sonata” in all its glory.

The podcast will be broadcast and available for download on Saturday at 6PM
