Beethoven's "Irish" Symphony.

Beethoven's magnificent 7th Symphony uses the Irish song "Save me from the Grave and Wise", for the frantic forth movement of this great work.
The sound is unmistakably Irish.
A very wild and exhilarating dance for a Michael Flatley! ?
Today I purchased the Complete Works of Beethoven on 100 CDs! An early birthday gift for meself, I deserve it. :-)

Ireland's National Music Sculpture Park.

Beethoven memorial in China!

Update News 30th May 2009.
Support for the Music Park idea is flooding in.

Senator, David Norris, has kindly offered his support in a reply to my email.
Irish Goverment Ministers are now aware of the idea.

Dr. John McLachlan
Executive Director
Association of Irish Composers
supports the idea.

"Ireland's National Music Park", discussed at the AIC'S, AGM.

The famous Irish Composer and Harpist.
Along with John Field,Thomas Moore, and Opera soprano Margaret Sheridan we could have memorials to Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Tchaikovsky etc. The idea is still in it's embryonic stage, but gathering momentum by the minute as word of it spreads across the globe, thanks to the Internet.

A very nice Christmas present.
