    I like this New Yorker article on Beethoven:

    http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/20...deus-ex-musica

    and as said therein :
    "On the subject of his late string quartets, which generations of listeners have hailed as a pinnacle of Western civilization,"

    I like all the symphonies, and am partial to the 9th. But I do agree with the comment , the late string quartets are amazing.

    Today Would Have Been

    ...the 189th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, arguably one of, if not the best, composer in history.

    What are your favorite Beethoven works?

    Of his symphonies, the Symphony #5 in C-minor resonates the most with me.

    There's probably no better piano work ever written than Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

    And when it comes to smaller works, his Dances Allemande is a real sleeper.
